In sprint cumulative flow in Jira
|In Sprint Cumulative Flow|
It is one of the tools that I use to reduce reliance on estimating.
It was labour intensive when done manually, however it was zero effort to maintain in Jira, just a bit tricky, so here are the steps
How to do it?You need to go to Board configuration
Click on Configure then select Quick Filters and create this filter:
When you have done this select the Cumulative Flow report as follows:
Now configure the report to set the start and end dates to match your current sprint as follows:
Then refine the report to select all the columns you require and select the newly created "Current Sprint" filter.
Then the report should look like this, although this is for a brand new project and is very early on.
If you measure left to right (from orange to green in tis case) you get lead time. If you measure vertically you get WIP. Use this in your information radiator as exposure of this information will drive improvement. Take a screenshot to compare sprint by sprint how you are improving.
You can configure a filter to remove subtasks as follows, but I prefer to track them all.
