Have you taken your Agile Healthcheck?

From time to time we like to assess how well our agile implementations are going. A simple radar chart can give you a good insight into the overall health of your teams in terms of Agile / Scrum / Kanban maturity and performance.

Each spine on the radar chart can reflect your assessment of how well each part of your Agile team is working. For example, for my Product Owner spine I use an average assessment of the following measures on a 1-5 scale, with 5 being exemplar and 1 being just starting out.

Here are a couple of assessment charts for a Scrum and a Kanban team implementation we have run on some previous assignments. As you can see, at the time of the assessment, there is room for improvement. It’s a good job that we have a Kaizen philosophy in place! Using this assessment, we could target where to best focus coaching and training efforts.
