Screen #1 – Historical graph
The main strategy with Historical graph data is to have a periodic overview with the team regard output level. The ideal situation is having an output equal to capacity. Looking at this graph, the following lessons can be learned:
- If the system does not display the output and capacity lines at the same level, there are reasons why your team does less than it could and cannot produce the expected output.
- If the load line is higher than output and capacity, it means that your resource groups are overloaded, and it is one of the reasons why your team’s capacity is not equal to output.
- Balancing the load and capacity will help you achieve better output.
Dependency between Load and Output
The team should not be overload, otherwise, the output will drop.
Keep Load stable on the Capacity level and monitor output.
Monitoring the Load and Output
The periodic overview is obligatory for the team and successful project flow. Each peak and fluctuation must be analyzed to improve the process and learn the lesson on performed mistakes.
Monitoring team daily team performance
Our recommendation is to involve the team and lead them in finding explanations on depicted Historical Load. It will keep team concentrated and also help to define impediments on earlier stages.
