Queue Size

The Queue Size describes the amount work, that is not yet started. A long Queue Size adds to the Lead Time of the Value Stream.

Measuring the Queue Size tells about the workload of the team. If it keeps growing, then the team cannot handle the incoming work.

The goal is to have a small and stable Queue Size.
