Cumulative Flow Diagram: A valuable tool for improving workflow
“Flow is so important to managing modern work and enabling customer satisfaction. The Cumulative Flow Diagram is very efficient: it integrates a lot of information in a single picture. People often struggle to interpret and master the usage of CFDs. Paulo’s book delivers step-by-step guidance to maximize your understanding and demystify this important tool.” David J. Anderson, author of the Kanban: Successful Evolutionary Change for Your Technology Business and several other books
Have you ever imagined how great it would be to have a tool to optimize your workflow?
It was with this in mind that Paulo Caroli wrote this practical and objective guide in which he shares his knowledge about the Cumulative Flow Diagram (CFD).
The contents of this book will be another ally in your quest for efficiency and continuous improvement! In addition to being simple, CFD is a very valuable and effective tool for understanding your workflow and then improving the efficiency of your process.
What are the main functions of a CFD?
The Cumulative Flow Diagram has two main functions for flow management. The first is to track and predict the completion of work items; the second is to indicate the need to act on the flow and process of improvement.
How do I know if CFD will work for my workflow?
By learning the content in the book, you will be able to adapt the diagram for all types of workflows, from the simplest to the most complex.
Especially for workflow with several stages, it is very important to have a tool to help manage and monitor each one of them.
And what am I going to use the CFD for?
Among other functions, you’ll be able to use the diagram to understand and act upon your workflows, no matter their complexity. You will be able to calculate the flow parameters of your whole system and each step. You will know how to systematise all workflow stages and control the input and output of work items to detect instabilities and act on them.
With a playful, fun, and objective didactic, Caroli shares his knowledge about the tool that helps many agile teams to manage their workflows and improve the work process. Discover the Cumulative Flow Diagram and join these teams in their quest for continuous improvement.
