Tag completed work with tags you can use to filter for similar data when you need to forecast upcoming work. Some ideas for tags: how known or unknown, type of work, how dependent on others, is the code debt free/huge. Any attribute to help isolate similar expected lead-time data

Some work is well known and expected to have low variability. Some work is totally unknown to your team or possibly any team on Earth. Expecting predictability isn't the goal or desire, massive wins need some patience. You need both. Know which work is which and plan accordingly.

Sampling cycle time or throughput is a balancing act. Use as many samples as you can, but NOT at the expense of introducing error based on irrelevant or atrophied data (old, out of context, team different). I start using data at 7 samples and keep the most recent & applicable 20.

Whilst looking at dozens of charts a few times a year (OKRs, KPIs, etc) in quarterly reviews is better than not looking at all, looking at just a few continuously is better. Which ones matter? That is an important question for your organization to know.

Is there a term for time spent making graphs look pretty instead of working on actual analyses? Procrastigraphing?

Some useful data: "Maternal mortality in the United States" We should be doing more as a country; but some states need to REALLY REALLY do more.

The story told by metrics captured under duress is a work of fiction. Better Wording?

Thanks to The Miracle League and the Moose for adding Baseball to special needs kids lives. Your effort is appreciated and important. This was Aiden and Moose last weekend in Redmond, WA.

Totally cool. I'm just being careful not to inadvertently derail the discussion about why and when to use or not use. I think it's important we as a community understand the exceptions and inclusions for each technique. Plus I'm a part of the community!

"Communication is the first thing to go when workload gets overwhelming" from Easyjet inside the cockpit (i like it OK!) in reference to pilot command training.

But they don't always :) I think it's a more complex answer than never or always. I've seen them work when applied to local dedicated teams (very high hands-on time and no dependencies elsewhere). I've also had them save me when work types change - so i'm careful :)
