You've probably heard that You can't improve what you can't measure and, over the years, teams have used various techniques to make the invisible visible. From value stream mapping to burndown charts, making things visible is a core component of the continuous improvement process. Brandon Carlson says that even with all this visibility, much of the data surrounding how your teams work is either not captured or not visible, and represents a great opportunity for improvement. Imagine your management team tells you that your velocity is too low. Why is it too low, and what can you do about it? Brandon shares one team’s surprising answer to that question when they made visible and analyzed data that was previously invisible. How do you know what the highest risk areas of the system are for enabling the most cost effective regression test strategy? You'll get that answer, too. It's all there, tucked away where no one can see, waiting for you to shine a light on it.
