Release 3.3 | 11.02.2015

Release 3.03 – Monday 11/02/2015

Updates to Radars:

We’ve kept the core TeamHealth radar very stable for a while now but decided to make an update to the competencies and questions to better support our KANBAN teams,  thanks so much to our Vistaprint friends for sharing all their feedback!

Our goal is for this TeamHealth  assessment to be used by Agile teams regardless of the method they use, but based on the feedback from our customers, some changes were needed to accommodate both. Here they are:

  1. Changed the competencies ‘Release Plan’ and ‘Iteration Plan’ to ‘Mid-Term Plan’ and ‘Short-Term Plan’ since Kanban teams don’t usually have a ‘Release Plan’. The questions were updated as well to ask about the ‘next couple of weeks’ or ‘next few months’ instead of ‘next iteration’ or ‘next release’.
  2. Changed the competency ‘Predictable Velocity’ to ‘Predictable Delivery’. That actually works out best for Scrum or Kanban teams. Also changed the questions to ask about ‘velocity, lead/cycle time’.
  3. Split out a few questions that seemed to have two different questions in one, we’ll probably do more of that. For example we used to combine a question about ‘tracking target vs. actual results’ and ‘our actual delivery is within 10% of our target’ which now we’ve split into two.
  4. Made some other minor changes to the text of some questions to simplify the language.

As you go through the assessment and notice these changes, please post your feedback below, we’d love to hear from you if you like these changes or have other suggestions. Don’t forget to use the HELP button in your app to also send questions, suggestions or any issues you run into.
