Quality Insights

Review Speed - Review speed measures the time it takes to review a Pull Request. If review/approval is slow, the context is lost for the author.

PR Size - Small pull requests are easier to review, making it more likely for code to be thoroughly reviewed before approval. Large pull requests tend to be glazed over and rubber stamped.

Files per PR - A large number of modified files per PR can make the code review more complex, requiring the reviewer to have more context. It can also indicate a complex architecture.

PR Approval rate - A quality measure of a teams review process.

Time to fix a broken build - The time between a build failing and being resolved is a high-risk time frame due to that deployments are blocked and fixes cannot be pushed for customers.

Automated testing - A higher amount of testing during deployment, and earlier in the process will lead to more successful builds and therefore less rework and better deployment health.

Commits per build - A large amount of commits per build makes it harder to detect the reason for build failures.

Communication Flow Insights

Balanced communication - Balanced communication ensures all team members are involved in communications.

Responsiveness - Members of a responsive team are able to remove impediments and progress with their work quicker than less responsive teams.
