    Hello

     

       One more questions related to Responsiveness

     

        The responsiveness options shows the Responsiveness  number and TiP number in percentile

     

        Kindly clarify how Responsiveness is calculated in relation to TiP

     

        For my project I get a Responsiveness  number of  73, 28 , 8 . Please elaborate what does this mean for a business leader or project manager

     

       Requesting your pointers for the same at the earliest

     

    Regards

    Hello Prabhuram.

     

    There are the answers to the the previous questions you asked. 

     

    1. Whether Specific customized reports like comparison for different projects other than companies- We currently don't any specific reports or customization that can accomplish this function.

     

    2.  2. Whether it is possible to aggregate 2-3 projects and get a consolidated report for all the parameters like Predictability , Responsiveness  etc- You can accomplish this by creating a Virtual Workspace and including the project s that you want to compare.  You can add Virtual Workspaces by Clicking on the Gear icon next to the Demo Box.  You can then add you projects here.

     

    Thank you,

    Hi there, 

     

    To answer your questions: 

    • Responsiveness is calculated as a value or rating between 1-100, and the higher the better.  A high responsiveness score indicates a faster time-to-market and a communicative relationship with customers. 
    • Time in Process (TiP) is calculated as the time it takes a user story to go from In Progress to Accepted, in days

     

    So if you have a responsiveness number of 78, that's pretty good (say a C+) - your organization is fairly responsive. 28 or 8 would be fairly unresponsive, right? 

     

    Hope that helps.
