This is a good follow on to the velocity and capacity discussion. If velocity is the amount of new feature work we can get done in a sprint and capacity is the amount of bandwidth we have in the sprint, other stuff fills in the delta between velocity and capacity. SO…do we estimate it?
A rant about estimates, #noEstimates, relative estimating, story points, ideal days. You might learn something or more likely will just be mildly entertained. What else did you expect for a return from a 6+ month hiatus? Oh and also a sneak peak into my research project and how YOU can get involved — check back in March.
I’ve been blogging a lot about commitment and estimating lately both on this blog and my work blog. In a discussion with a Product Owner the other day, we were talking about looking at story sizes after the sprint to determine if they were sized correctly. I think this is a great idea and I’d like to plan it into a retrospective.
