Monitor Performance of Your Agile Scrum Teams with Velocity Chart

by Jay D. Project Management Software

Velocity is a key performance indicator for any agile scrum team to measure how much work has been delivered for each sprint. It helps Product Owners to have a clear view on future sprints and on the workload of the team.

It also facilitates very accurate forecasting of how many stories a Team can do in a Sprint. For forecasting purposes the average of the last three Sprint’s Velocity should be used.

Without Velocity, Release Planning is impossible. By knowing Velocity, a Product Owner can figure out how many Sprints will it take for the Team to achieve a desired level of functionality that can then be shipped. Depending on the length of the Sprint, the Product owner can fix a date for the release.

To calculate the velocity of your agile team, simply add up the estimates of the features, user stories, requirements or backlog items successfully delivered in an iteration and compare it with the committed estimation.
