Simple but powerful agile metrics to monitor progress

Sprint burn-down - Scrum teams organize development into time-boxed sprints. At the outset of the sprint, the team forecasts how much work they can complete during a sprint. A sprint burn-down report then tracks the completion of work throughout the sprint. 

Cumulative Flow Diagram – This will help Kanban team especially for team working outside scrum team to limit work in progress (WIP). Limiting WIP will help team to focus on assignment that has been already initiated.

Release burn-down - Epic and release (or version) burn-down charts track the progress of development over a larger body of work than the sprint burn-down, and guide development for both scrum and Kanban teams. Since a sprint (for scrum teams) may contain work from several epics and versions, it's important to track both the progress of individual sprints as well as epics and versions.

Velocity - Velocity is the average amount of work a scrum team completes during a sprint, measured in either story points or hours, and is very useful for forecasting. The product owner can use velocity to predict how quickly a team can work through the backlog, because the report tracks the 

Defect ratio – This will help to establish number of defects per story/feature/epic based on defect logged in by business/product owner.

Cycle time - Teams with shorter cycle times are likely to have higher throughput, and teams with consistent cycle times across many issues are more predictable in delivering work. While cycle time is a primary metric for Kanban teams, scrum teams can benefit from optimized cycle time as well.
