agileLUNCHBOX- Forecasting Multi-Team Capacity

  • Oct 31, 2012 · 11:30 AM

This event is a partnership between COHAA, PMI, and Agile Lunchbox.

Scrum 101 teaches us to use story points to estimate a team’s capacity. And Scrum 101 says that story points are only relevant to the team estimating them. But when you create a large project with multiple teams, how do you estimate the combined capacity? Do you try and normalize story points across teams? Or calculate each team’s velocity as a percentage of the backlog, and calculate out the capacity from there? Perhaps you just measure the number of stories, and ignore points all together? Or maybe you have some other approach? However you approach the issue, come hear what others are saying, and share your ideas.

Not familiar with a “Fishbowl Panel”? The panel will initially consist of 3 people, and 4 chairs on stage. People in the audience are encouraged to ask questions, but may not answer any questions or give opinions. However, at anytime, any audience member may go sit in the empty chair and join the panel to answer questions and contribute their views and opinions. Once an audience member sits in the empty chair, one of the panelists will go sit in the audience (at the least disruptive time), leaving an open seat for the next audience member who wants to join the panel.
