  5. WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?

  6. @mattphilip #lkfr17 HOW WOULD YOU ANSWER?

  7. @mattphilip #lkfr17 IS THIS SATISFACTORY?

  8. @mattphilip #lkfr17 In the absence of any quantitative feedback about

    the performance of our service delivery, fake due dates and artificial boundaries are always going to persist.

  17. SERVICE-DELIVERY REVIEW

  18. @mattphilip #lkfr17 A regular, quantitatively-oriented discussion between a customer and

    delivery team about the fitness for purpose of its service delivery.
  19. @mattphilip #lkfr17 7 KANBAN CADENCES

  20. @mattphilip #lkfr17 Is our service fit for its purpose?

  21. @mattphilip #lkfr17 POSSIBLE TOPICS ▫︎Delivery times of recent work, 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), front-line staff reports ▫︎“What obstacles stand in the way of our service- delivery expectations?”
  22. @mattphilip #lkfr17 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

  23. 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 delivery of expedite items? STANDARD-URGENCY PERFORMANCE How well did we do with on-time delivery of standard-urgency items? Service-level expectation: 85th percentile: 50th percentile: BLOCKER CLUSTERS Express largest clusters by type, count and total days blocked CURRENT POLICIES 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 DRIVERS AND HYPOTHESES We believe that <change> will result in <outcome> and we’ll know because of <signal> POLICY CHANGES Date: “Is our service delivery fit for its purpose according to our customer?”

  32. @mattphilip #lkfr17 TOP CUSTOMER SERVICE-DELIVERY EXPECTATIONS ▫︎Be accessible ▫︎Treat me

    courteously ▫︎Be responsive to what I need and want ▫︎Do what I ask promptly ▫︎Provide well-trained and informed employees ▫︎Tell me what to expect ▫︎Meet your commitments and keep your promises ▫︎Do it right the first time ▫︎Follow up ▫︎Be socially responsible and ethical -Brad Cleveland, International Customer Management Institute
  33. @mattphilip #lkfr17 Delighting customers 
 doesn’t build loyalty; 
 reducing

    their effort—
 the work they must do 
 to get their problem solved
 —does.
  34. @mattphilip #lkfr17 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 and achievement ▫︎Generates feedback with (meaningful) data ▫︎Helps you understand why you fail and then align improvement efforts ▫︎Builds customer trust and loyalty ▫︎Improve your relationships!
  35. @mattphilip #lkfr17 93%, my love.

  36. @mattphilip #lkfr17 TAKEAWAYS FOR TOMORROW ▫︎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”
  37. @mattphilip #lkfr17 The tighter you make your feedback loops, the

    greater agility you can exhibit as a business, the faster you can sense and respond. — Anderson and Zheglov, Fit for Purpose
