These stats include:
- sprint length – 10 days
- issues per sprint – 30
- planned vs completed – 73%
- backlog number of epics – 12
- days between releases – 15
What is interesting about the infographic is not that it is particularly ground breaking news, but that it aligns pretty closely to our experience in the field working with agile teams. It also posits a strong case for continuous integration.
