Track how many tasks you deliver. Keep an eye on your throughput trends. Evaluate the breakdown of your completed work.
Throughput is a measure of the amount of completed work on a certain day, week or month. The Throughput Run Chart for Asana displays your team’s throughput for a specific time frame. The horizontal axis represents a timeline, while the vertical axis shows your throughput. Each bar is made up of colored sections, with each color representing a different type of completed work.
We recommend monitoring your throughput every week to make sure you are delivering work in a predictable manner.
The dotted green line mapped across the graph is called a throughput trendline. It uses polynomial regression to visualize how your throughput trends have been moving over time.
If the trendline drops down, this indicates that your team is struggling to deliver results. To overcome this pattern, consider your work in progress. Reduce your WIP limits and direct your team’s efforts to resolve the bottlenecks on your workflow.
The ‘Throughput Breakdown’ widget helps you identify the type of work that is requested most of the time. Each colored section represents a particular type of work and as well as how much of the total completed work it takes up.
The ‘Throughput Breakdown’ widget is particularly helpful when you want to point out the high volume of expedite requests that you’re handling.
The ‘Throughput’ widget shows the total amount of work delivered within the selected time frame. It also depicts the development of your throughput rates over time. Ideally, the line should either stay even or increase smoothly.
Keep an eye out for decreases in the throughput line! This indicates bottlenecks affecting your team’s delivery performance.
