Learning Checks

How is the Daily update report most commonly used in Standups?  

  • To help the team quickly surface discussions around code-level blockers. 
  • To find team collaboration patterns. 
  • To visualize commit, ticket, and PR activity in one unified view. 


What does the Review workflow report show? 

  • A visualization of team work patterns over time. 
  • A unified view of all the team’s open PRs over the selected time period. 
  • A set of metrics that give a high-level view of how the team is leveraging the code review process. 

What are the defining characteristics of high-activity pull requests? 

  • PRs that are seeing a lively discussion, likely with a number of reviewers participating, but the discussion has continued for a while and doesn’t seem to be driving toward a resolution.
  • PRs that are larger in size, with a higher level of Review coverage. 
  • PRs that have a higher than average number of follow-on commits. 

What are the defining characteristics of long-running pull requests?

  • PRs that were submitted near the end of a sprint after the main PR was approved. 
  • PRs that have been open for a while, where there was some back-and-forth discussion between team members that was followed by silence. 
  • PRs that have been open for a while but haven’t received any comments or an approval.
