Two years ago, Jean Pierre went looking for tooling that could provide better visibility into metrics and KPIs for their engineering organization, and specifically for their sprints. He came across GitPrime and after trialing the platform, TangoCode rolled it out to the broader organization.
Jean Pierre says they were very deliberate about how they positioned GitPrime to the team. “We gained buy-in from the teams by explaining that if we want to improve as a team, we have to measure meaningful KPIs.”
Not long after TangoCode introduced analytics about the delivery process to their teams and incorporated it in their workflows, the team started trending towards more sustainable and healthy work patterns. “Shipping code in smaller and frequent chunks was much better for us because the project stories would get to the UX and QA team members for reviews earlier in the sprint. This ultimately improved the team’s throughput. Thanks to GitPrime, this was a huge gain for us,” says Jean Pierre.
TangoCode also saw a significant reduction in their pull request Time to Resolve. Jean Pierre says that when they first implemented GitPrime, their pull request time was one day. Once the team had visibility into this metric and the "quick win" activities that would help reduce the average time it took for code to get through the review process, they soon reduced Time to Resolve to just a few hours, resulting in faster time to delivery for their clients.
“Before GitPrime, I was blind,” says Jean Pierre. “Now we finally have the data that shows us how we're doing, and as a team we can take actions based on that.”
