Calculate Your Team's Cycle Time in Minutes

Measuring cycle time is the foundation of determining engineering pipeline health. LinearB shows you your team’s cycle time (broken down into phases) to quickly expose bottlenecks and root causes in your delivery pipeline.

Improving cycle time instantly makes an impact and enhances your DevOps practice. LinearB not only tracks cycle time in minutes right out of the box; it also contextualizes this metric to give it more meaning. LinearB then automates cycle time improvement and enhances the developer experience (DX) with our developer bot, WorkerB.
Correlate data across Git, project, release, and incident management tools to deliver workflow visibility in minutes. Measure proven DORA metrics with LinearB, like cycle time, mean time to restore, and deployment frequency.

Benchmark Your Cycle Time & Identify Areas that Need Focus

The average cycle time is about 7 days. The best dev teams review PRs in less than 6 hours–and in less than 4. How does your team compare?

LinearB doesn’t just calculate cycle time for you. It benchmarks your teams against industry standards and shows you where you should focus improvement efforts. A PR sitting idle for 5 days isn’t just an improvement opportunity; it’s a bottleneck that needs to be addressed.

Decrease Cycle Time by Setting Team Goals

Cycle time need focus? With Team Goals, you get to decide where your team needs to improve every sprint (and see how they did at the end of it).

Set custom Team Goals around leading indicators of cycle time, like review time, PR size, and review depth– use WorkerB to automate improvement. Teams should check goal attainment regularly and constantly try to improve further.

Automate Cycle Time Reduction with WorkerB

Merging devs are happy devs. Unfortunately, half of all pull requests (PRs) are idle for 50% of their lifespan. Even worse, most of the time PRs waiting 4+ days to be reviewed result in “LGTM.” This is a poor developer experience.

Using automated notifications in Slack or MS Teams, WorkerB helps reduce project idle time between hand-offs with functionality to help devs prioritize their day, automate annoying tasks, and review and approve small PRs directly from their WorkerB notifications.

Reduced idle time translates to reduced cycle time and ultimately faster feedback loops, more work getting merged, and a better DX.
