This post is the first article in our Tactical Guide to a Shorter Cycle Time five-part series. Low Cycle Time is a characteristic of high performing teams–and the authors of 9 years of DevOps Reports have the data to prove it.

The bottom 25% have a cycle time of 6.2 days; this is 80 times higher than that of the best performing organizations.
