New Work %
- It shows the lines of code/total lines of code added or modified.
- Low New Work indicates the team is trying to change old code even to build new features, which will impact the implementation of high blast radius and poor SOLID principles. It's a signal to review the architecture.
- More New Work, along with slight maintenance, is always a good sign, as it indicates SOLID practices are in place, and the team can go ship new features at a faster pace as code is isolated.
