CYCLE TIME

You must have noticed that velocity calculation is based on the sum of estimates for stories a time-box. But Kanban method does not have the concept of time-boxing. Thus, it is calculated story by story, and the time taken to complete that particular story is called the cycle time.

For calculating the cycle time, keep track of the following:

  1. The date on which a story enters the story queue—entry date.
  2. The date on which the story enters the first story process step column—start date.
  3. Then finally the date it reaches the last ‘done’ column at the end of the board, which means the date it is completed—done date.

As shown in Figure 6.10, the cycle time that includes the wait time in the queue = the difference between the entry date and done date.
