Advanced Features of Oobeya’s Scrum Boards to Boost Productivity

Oobeya offers several widgets that display various metrics:

  • Summary Widget: Basic view of your board (name, type, average stats, etc.).
  • Time in State Widget: Average time a task stays in each state. This widget includes Summary, Lead Time Highest 50 & Lowest 50, and Done Issue List views.
  • Sprint Velocity Metrics Widget: Velocity measurements of work completed in a Sprint.
  • Assignee List Widget: Activities of all assignees on the board.
  • Work In Progress Widget: Issues open for more than 5 days.
  • Scope Change Widget: Changes (removed and added tasks) after the sprint starts (item count and effort).
  • Estimated/Actual Effort Widget: Shows the accuracy of the estimations provided by the team (Estimated Effort/Actual Effort). This graph is used to understand the root cause of divergence.

These features not only help in tracking but also in identifying areas for continuous improvement, ensuring that your team is always on the path to enhanced productivity.

Detailed Overview of Key Scrum Metrics and Reports

The Summary Report gives an overarching view of completed sprints, average sprint velocity, lead time, and cycle time. It helps teams quickly grasp their overall performance and identify areas for improvement.

Time in State:

  • Tracks the average time tasks stay in each state before completion.
  • Helps teams identify bottlenecks and streamline processes.
  • Reaction Time: Reaction time is the measurement of how much time a task stays in ‘Not started’ (to do, backlog, etc.) states.
  • Cycle Time: Cycle time is the measurement of how much time passes between work started on an item (story, task, bug, etc.) until it’s ready for delivery. (Work started -in progress- to work completed.)
  • Lead Time: Lead time is the measurement of how much time passes between task creation and when the work is completed. (Task created to work completed.)
