Committing to the right amount

April 5, 2011 Andy Powell

How does your team determine the right amount of work in the sprint?  Is that approach working in your given situation?

In this video post, I explore the various ways that a team can reflect on their sprint plan before committing.  I start with the most lightweight and progress to more rigorous (and hopefully more precise) methods.  The approaches are:

  1. It feels right.
  2. Velocity
  3. Detail Estimate Trend
  4. Capacity vs. Detail Estimate
