Are there any extensions or queries that can somehow track initial story points estimated versus story points completed for a sprint? I’d like a report/chart that can show initial sprint estimate vs. completed work. We have the Retrospective extension that allows us to discuss the information, but I’m not aware of a way to generate a report or chart to provide the data. It’s one thing to say in retrospectives that sprints 1, 4, and 6 were overestimated, but another thing to look at a report that shows 5 out of the 6 sprints overestimated.
I’m sure can show you how to build this report in PowerBI.
Not the answer you were looking for. But an important note on estimated (forecasted) vs completed.
And doing the report in a correct way is incredibly hard
That was a good read - thanks for writing it. Definitely on board with looking at reality rather than promises during the review. The “planned vs. done” is certainly a retrospective topic (sprint and product). We want to be able to pull that information periodically to demonstrate growth (or identify a place to improve) in our ability to plan accurately, addressing some trust issues between development and stakeholders.
It’s easier to just forecast less
Doesn’t the velocity widget do this? So easy to fudge the data to make it look good
Possibly. I’ll play around with that - some of these tools are in some interesting places. I wouldn’t have thought to look in the Backlogs for a velocity report. Thanks!
