Estimation Accuracy – Effort (Done and/or To Do) vs. Detail Estimate by Iteration

Have you ever wondered how accurate your sprint detailed planning estimates are, and if there may be room for improvement?  Would it be helpful if you had a way to have a meaningful conversation with your team about improving estimates to better predict if they can achieve their team sprint commitments?  Then the Estimation Accuracy report may be for you!

The Estimation Accuracy Report from VersionOne shows by member how accurate the detailed (planned) estimate was as compared to the actual hours spent on all the tasks, tests and stories in a sprint.  If you are tracking your team’s actual hours, then this report will be very helpful for improving your overall delivery.

Key Benefits and Uses:

  • Ensuring the team can deliver commitments to the customer
  • Identifying backlogs and roadblocks
  • Meaningful conversations in retrospectives, as well for team and individual reviews
  • Tuning your estimating and delivery process

Give it a try today.  Here is how it looks:
