About this report
The program increment confidence report captures how a sprint team feels at the end of a sprint: are they feeling optimistic, neutral, or pessimistic heading into the next sprint? This report provides a snapshot of team confidence for a specific team tied to a program, over the previous 3, 5, or 10 sprints. This report can be used as a coaching tool by Scrum Masters, team leaders, and product owners to assess the effectiveness and health of the sprint teams. It is beneficial to review the report with team members during pre- and post-PI meetings and during sprint review meetings. This report is generated by selecting a specific team tied to a specific program.
Note that this report is similar to the team emotion report. However, the team emotion report provides a look at all sprint teams within a PI; the program increment confidence report focuses on one specific team tied to a program.

How to interpret this report
Sunny skies and smiley faces is what you are after. After all, a positive, optimistic team will be more effective in reaching shared goals. Too many clouds, thunderstorms, or frowny faces means team dynamics, workload, and impediments should be closely examined to see where improvements can be made.
