Little's Law dictates that:

lead time = work in progress / throughput

To decrease lead times, you should limit the work in progress (ideally to 1 task at a time) and/or increase your throughput.

Secret: when you limit the amount of work in progress, your throughput will also increase thanks to reduced context switching. It's a win-win situation.


In truth, these things often look simpler than they are, so I blogged some practical and shareable tips on how to implement Little's Law in your delivery process.
