Governance
Obeya

A single ‘big room’ view of how your iterations are progressing with insights on value, cost, progress, risks, dependencies and blockers. Add to that some vital confidence and predictive analyses to help you be one step ahead.

PERFORMANCE CHECKPOINTS

Compare performance snapshots between different points in time. Understand how your performance has changed to see if it is improving and whether your interventions are generating the expected results.

PERFORMANCE BENCHMARKER

Compare the performance of teams and programs against each other as well as against industry standards.
For healthy and meaningful comparisons, we only use metrics that allow each team’s unique context to be taken into consideration.

Business Scorecard

A dashboard with the flexibility to set a variety of business metrics, connecting strategy to execution. Ensure that teams are aligned to business goals/outcomes by making them explicit, up to date and visible.

What we are hearing

"We don't have visibility on what is actually happening. We only know what we've been told.
"We don't know that we're struggling to hit our commitments until after the fact.
"We have a cumbersome reporting process, and too much time is spent manually generating them.

Key Challenges

  • Information is scattered across different tools and structures, using different patterns and taxonomies.
  • Too much time and energy is required to put together manual reports.
  • Watermelon reports and a lack of confidence that they reflect reality.

Our Take

We envision a place - Obeya Room - where individual contributors and leaders can flick across different iterations (Product Increments (PI) or Sprints) and know at a glance where things are at, without needing to ask several people via email, phone and Slack.

Imagine one single place with all you need to know related to how your different iterations are progressing with insights on value, cost, progress, risks, dependencies and blockers. Then, add to that some vital confidence and predictive analyses to help you be one step ahead.

Imagine if by the time you finish your planning process, you could know that you had less than a 65% chance to deliver on your commitments; Imagine seeing this number shifting up and down as time progresses; Imagine that we could tell you which teams are flowing and which are stuck; Imagine you could find out that you won't deliver that most anticipated feature by the due date a full three months before your commitment to stakeholders rather than finding this out after the non-delivery.

Performance Checkpoints

Flomatika Dashboard
  • tick
    Side by side comparison of key performance metrics across different periods
  • tick
    Thorough analysis using customer-centric and flow-based metrics
  • tick
    Compare several periods against a performance baseline using a heat map visualisation

What we are hearing

"We need to see the evidence that, over time, our interventions and improvements are indeed affecting our delivery performance positively.
"I need to be able to prove that our Transformation program has been effective and a worthy investment.
"I want to see what has worked and what hasn’t, so I can determine what the next intervention should be.

Key Challenges

  • Teams and Leaders rely on feelings, impressions and anecdotal evidence to judge if delivery performance has improved or not.
  • Improvements are unable to be quantified.
  • Investment in improvement programs is unable to be justified.

Our Take

Imagine asking Flomatika how much your teams and programs have improved over the last six months or in relation to the same period last year.

Imagine you can determine, not from feeling, but from hard data, that the Improvement program, over the last six months, has reduced lead time by 70%, reduced defects by a rate of 86%, tripled value delivery and increased predictability by 54 percentage points.

You provide us two date ranges and the platform will give you a thorough performance analysis. In a few seconds, not in days or weeks.

Performance Benchmarker

Flomatika Dashboard
  • tick
    Benchmark teams against themselves and industry benchmarks
  • tick
    See at what percentile of performance benchmarks your teams are performing
  • tick
    Thorough analysis using customer-centric and flow-based metrics

What we are hearing

"I want to see how my team is performing compared to other similar teams. I don’t know if we are as good as we think we are.
"I want to see what a high performing team looks like, so we know what is possible and what is the next level for us to strive for.
"I want to show that we are a high performing team. That the investments we have made and the changes we have introduced are allowing us to perform at the top level.

Key Challenges

  • At scale, it's challenging to understand which teams are performing well and which teams need help. As a result, organisations continue to rely on feelings, impressions and anecdotal evidence.
  • There's no way currently to identify teams that are doing well and to decode their working patterns and behaviours that are creating outstanding performance, so these can be applied to other teams.
  • There is no way currently for teams to compare performance against industry standards.

Our Take

We believe organisations should be able to compare the performance of their teams and programs against each other and industry standards.

For a healthy and meaningful comparison, we believe only metrics that allow the unique context of each team to be taken into consideration should be used - unfortunately, a common practice still using simplistic mechanisms such as comparing story points and velocity across teams.

We compare and gain insights from so many things without hurting people's and team's sense of security and self-worth. These include:
  • The degree to which teams are meeting their [unique] service level expectations.
  • The ratio between value and failure demand
  • The level of variability around lead time, WIP and throughput
  • The percentage of work discarded before and after it is started
  • Flow Debt ratio
  • Flow Efficiency

The list goes on and on. This should be simple. You give us two or more teams to compare; we give you a thorough analysis using customer-centric and flow-based metrics on how they compare to each other and against other players in the industry.

Business Scorecard

Flomatika Dashboard
  • tick
    Four types of metrics: Fitness Criteria, Health Indicators, Improvement Drivers and Vanity metrics
  • tick
    Defined dimensions, including Finance, Customer, Internal Process, Learning & Growth, People & Culture and Product
  • tick
    Notifications and actions every time business metrics goes above or below defined thresholds

What we are hearing

"Delivery teams are working in their own silos and are not closely attuned to business performance and customer needs.
"Delivery teams are disengaged from the work they are doing and not able to see how it contributes to the bigger picture.
"We want our goals and how we are tracking against them clearly visible to the teams, so we can strive for as well as celebrate our successes.

Key Challenges

  • Connecting strategy to execution.
  • Visualise how product delivery is moving the needle.
  • Visualise how different initiatives across different business units are impacting high-level business drivers.

Our Take

We acknowledge and support four different types of business metrics:
  1. Fitness criteria (KPIs) with thresholds → Indicate selection (by customers)
  2. Health indicators with a healthy range → Used to monitor capabilities or aspects of the business. They should be monitored because they may give you early warning of problems that will eventually manifest in a failure to be fit-for-purpose.
  3. Improvement drivers with a target → Used to motivate change and are generally linked causally to fitness criteria.
  4. Vanity metrics → Make us feel good, where more is always better.
Visualise your metrics within defined dimensions, such as
  • Finance
  • Customer
  • Internal Process
  • Learning & Growth
  • People & Culture
  • Product
    ‍‍
Imagine being able to receive notifications and actions every time a business metrics goes above or below defined thresholds. Be able to map work happening across teams and portfolios to specific metrics in specific dimensions. Get an easy-to-use dashboard to visualise the current state and trends.
