📈 Deployment Frequency

🚀 Lead time for changes

🎯 Change Failure Rate

⏳ Time to Restore services

We have been measuring how we work together as a team by looking at things like how much Focus Time we get on average as well as how often we are collaborating well.

We are at the moment steadily increasing our delivery pace by 50% each sprint.
