Eirik Pettersen, CTO Secret Escapes
The Secret Escapes development team already understood the importance of meaningful metrics to drive their relentless pursuit of engineering excellence.
They recognised that excellence is only achieved by constant improvement – and constant improvement requires the ability to track progress. The key is finding the metrics that are meaningful and trusted by the teams. And this is where Plandek has really helped.

It is early days with Plandek, but it is already making an important contribution to our collective effort to constantly improve our already world-class Agile engineering capability at Secret Escapes.
Plandek shows you industry averages and best practice targets for each key metric, so that you can see how you compare.
Although no benchmarks are perfect, comparisons can be very helpful to demonstrate to stakeholders your relative strengths.
Plandek is embraced at all levels with the technology team to underpin a new wave of accelerated Agile delivery. As such, Plandek provides customised dashboards and reports suitable for very different users:
Access to Plandek data to enable clients to select the metrics they are interested in and present them in their own UI.
Use of Plandek’s UI customised to the client’s requirements.
Plandek is used on a daily basis from Team Leader to the CTO at two levels within the business:
To accelerate ongoing development projects (the day job)
To track and manage the longer-term journey towards Agile engineering excellence.
As a result, our clients often ask for consulting support to help implement the opportunities for improvement revealed by Plandek at both levels.
Our Customer Success team provide an excellent level of ongoing relationship management but if you require more extensive consulting support we engage our trusted consulting partners.
