Example text

Graphs with three values are less powerful, but can be absorbed by most viewers. More that three, in my experience, require too much study, even with color. The goal should be to, as vividly and concisely as possible, display the data that define the issue – easy for this analyst to say, but not always easy for you to do. Sometimes the CM manager finds that they have data indicating problems but is frustrated because no one is listening. Sometimes they have too much data. For example, a typical change process may have 30 steps in it.

A decision as to the time-frequency of the metric also needs to be made – daily, weekly or monthly. Most of the suggested measurements will be done in whole work days. A more sophisticated approach, especially with flexible hours, might be to break the work day into ten hours/parts and measure to the tenth of a work day. This would better account for work days that are started early by some folks and ended late by others. Use of this technique would depend upon your hours and the need for precision.

Metric formats Data charts, graphs, pie diagrams, bar charts, Pareto charts, etc. all have a place in a metrics plan. The best choice for any given circumstance needs to be considered. Any of the variety of pictorial methods may be applicable. As you will see, this analyst tends to favor a timeline graph, preferably with goals set. Thus the timeline graph shows where we have been, where we are now, what the trend is and where we should be headed. Using the timeline requires a decision to be made as to whether Saturday will be counted as a work day.
