Work Estimations

  • Separate the work into tasks and use points to determine how long the task will take.
  • Have specific people who do the work, like the engineers and designers, estimate how long it takes them to get tasks done and tickets in the sprint completed.
  • Remember that people are prone to be off by some percentage when estimating hours to complete their work.

Management Teams

  • Management teams should contribute to making predictions for work estimation for their investors and customers.
  • View the role of a scrum master not as a project manager, but rather as helping the team become predictable in terms of work completion timelines and expectations.

Unfinished Projects

  • If you run into a dependency, have a problem you don’t know how to solve, and move on, eventually, you will have several things you start but don’t complete.
  • This disrupts the flow of the work with incomplete projects.
  • Each of the unfinished tasks takes on a cognitive burden, which will result in a decrease in productivity.
