  17. @mattphilip #prdcdeliver A regular, quantitatively-oriented discussion between a customer and

  18. @mattphilip #prdcdeliver 7 KANBAN CADENCES

  19. @mattphilip #prdcdeliver WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

  20. @mattphilip #prdcdeliver TOPICS (“IS OUR SERVICE FIT FOR ITS PURPOSE?”)

    ▫︎Delivery times (aka Cycle/Lead/Time-in-Process) of recent work and tail length in distribution ▫︎Blocker-clustering results and remediations ▫︎Work-type mix (% allocation to work types) ▫︎Classes of service/expectations of each work type ▫︎Value-demand ratio (value-add or failure demand) ▫︎Due-date performance (fixed-date misses) ▫︎Policy changes ▫︎Results of fitness surveys (e.g., F4P Box Score) ▫︎“What obstacles stand in the way of our service- delivery expectations?”
  21. @mattphilip #prdcdeliver FEEDBACK METRICS ▪ Team health ▪ Engagement ▪

    Flow efficiency ▪ Delivery time distribution ▪ Throughput ▪ Due-date performance ▪ Mean time to restore ▪ Code health ▪ Performance ▪ Revenue ▪ Usage metrics ▪ App-store rating Service Product Customer

  22. SERVICE-DELIVERY REVIEW CANVAS FITNESS CRITERIA METRICS What does our customer

    value about our service? e.g. Predictable delivery, quality, delivery-time expectation at 85th% Delivery Team (single kanban): SERVICES WE PROVIDE Which service requests / work items types do we accept? What are the service level expectations of each work item type? PARTICIPANTS IN REVIEW E.g., Flow manager, coach, exec sponsor, Product owner, customer(s), external stakeholders, delivery team reps
 INPUTS OUTPUTS DUE-DATE PERFORMANCE How well did we do with on-time delivery of fixed-date items? EXPEDITE PERFORMANCE How well did we do with on-time delivery of expedite items? STANDARD-URGENCY PERFORMANCE How well did we do with on-time delivery of expedite items? Service-level expectation: 85th percentile: 50th percentile: BLOCKER CLUSTERS Express largest clusters by type, count and total days blocked ACHIEVEMENTS AND SHORTFALLS VS. EXPECTATIONS OPTIONS TO REDUCE RISK Or system-design changes to improve capability vs. expectations (e.g., reduce WIP) FORECAST Based on delivery times, our expectation that we will complete remaining work IMPROVEMENT HYPOTHESES We believe that <change> will result in <outcome> and we’ll know because of <signal> Date: “Is our service delivery fit for its purpose according to our customer?”

  29. @mattphilip #prdcdeliver BENEFITS OF A SERVICE-DELIVERY REVIEW ▫︎Forces you to

    focus on customers and become fit for the purpose for which they chose you ▫︎Sets clear standards ▫︎Generates feedback with (meaningful) data ▫︎Forces you to understand why you fail and align improvement efforts ▫︎Builds customer trust and loyalty ▫︎Gives employees greater sense of achievement
  30. @mattphilip #prdcdeliver Delighting customers 
 doesn’t build loyalty; 
 reducing

    their effort—
 the work they must do 
 to get their problem solved
 —does.
  31. @mattphilip #prdcdeliver TAKEAWAYS FOR NEXT MONDAY ▫︎Identify and involve your

    customer ▫︎Ask the “fitness” question (What do you value…?) ▫︎Discover your services ▫︎Establish service-delivery expectations ▫︎Keep doing the other useful feedback loops ▫︎Reduce/combine meetings rather than add new ▫︎Consider as way to measure “agile adoption”
