@christian.kullmann any Service Management tool should do for the basics. When we started we were using CAโ€™s Global Service Desk but have migrated to Service Now. We count the CRโ€™s and the INโ€™s , so you need solid IT Service Mgmt record keeping.

@csomakk if you look carefully you can see seasonal peaks in Mar, June, Sept and Nov - a legacy of quarterly releases. With the massive dip in Dec/Jan for change freeze. When you plot for 8000 apps this is still pronounced, however for mature apps itโ€™s all but disappeared. For teams of high maturity they can choose to ignore YE change freezes. What we see with maturing teams is both the positive jaws and the flattening out of peaks and troughs. We have some way to go !

Metrics remove the subjectivity from communication

๐Ÿ’ฏ 3

Mattijs Ghijsen07:05:08

Fully agree! But I do struggle with the โ€œhowโ€ in measuring DORA metrics. For example, a failed deployment may be interpreted in many different ways by a software development team. So how do you ensure that the numbers actually have the same meaning across the whole org, especially at such a large scale? Or do we just accept that there are different interpretations and allow for that?

๐Ÿ‘ 1
Steve Challis08:05:58

I guess if you are always measuring in the same way then its ok. The Value in metrics come from improvements against the baseline that you take. Yes DORA suggest "what good metrics look like" but as long as you're improving compared with how you were yesterday then it is useful. The harder thing is how do you actually surface that information? Most orgs I chat with look blankly when I ask them to share even the very basics of metrics. Another thing that I think is important to capture is the value that was actually delivered by the change that was made. This closes the feedback loop. Most changes will have a proposal about what the value will be from the change, but how many times do we measure if that value was realised? Without the above the biggest "development" problem that you have could be getting the business cases wrong for your changes. Therefore most of your effort is completely wasted.!! just my thoughts

@drandremartin is almost ambidextrous ๐Ÿ˜„ - wrong fit experience audience exercise!

Ferrix Hovi - Principal Engineering Avocado - SOK (S Group)15:05:56

I see a correlation here. According to @mik, 8% of the value stream doesn't suck... And 40% of people are unhappy. It is marvelous that 60% of people can be contempt.

@drandremartin how do you promote culture transformation when you know that all the new recruits will see the old culture (that we want to change) and leave or worse disengage?

Filip Berlikowski, CTO15:05:47

Be open to recruits about the fact that the transformation is needed. Be transparent about the plan of the transformation and make it clear that their role in that transformation is fundamental for its success.
