How is effort calculated?(advanced excel template)

January 21, 2009 by bayliss_trevor

Hi all,
A quick question please:
What are the numbers in effort representing? Hours?

I'm using the advanced ph_product_sprint_backlog_0.03.xls
How is the effort shown with regards to the number of developers?

Thank you for any pointers a the amount of effort is a bit confusing, Cheers

Whatever team wants. Usually ideal hours

I guess you mean the sprint backlog page that in the tutorial video starts around 8:30.

Ideal Scrum team (and many of real Scrum teams) every day update the amount of work remaining to complete this or that task. Sprint burndown chart summarizes the remaining work numbers to let the team see how much on track they are.

Sprint backlog is in the ownership of the team and the team is free to use whatever units they like. There are teams that use real hours, little-medium-big (though this option is more difficult to summarize) or binary status (done or not, works well when all the tasks are small and about the same size). One of the most popular option is to estimate the amount of remaining "ideal engineering hours" - that is the hour of ideal work, when engineer is able to work without any interruption, without having to respond to many emails, without the need to go to meetings, etc. Such an "ideal" measure is supposed to reflect the amount of actual work better, than real world hours, because real world hours depend really much on the amount of meetings, interruptions, etc.

Thank you for the reply Artem

Thank you for the reply Artem and for the great answer. How do you manage risk management in scrum -I imagine "ideal engineering hours" is always a risk. What other risks do you see in scrum webdeveolpment to be shown to product owner/stakeholders?

I don't think "ideal engineering hours" are a risk. It is just a measure of the work size that works for some teams. To me it is no more risk, than trying to use the weight of just grain (excluding humidity and garbage) when calculating for how long the village can eat what people stored in the granary - just a convenient [to some] measure.

As for the general risk management in Agilem thatg is a very broad topic. We covered some of it in these risk related articles

I am trying to watch the tutorial on the advanced product backlog excel file and it stops around the 2:30 mark (right when you are about to select the "sort product backlog" button. The player gives me an option for either "more" or "again". Do you know if there is something wrong with the video? Thanks

There is significant dependence on personal communication and customer collaboration. Agile Modeling disciplines can be difficult to apply where there are large teams, team members are unable to share and collaborate on models, or modeling skills are weak or lacking. Mauritius holiday

Web Crawler - One Type of Computer Based Program
Web crawler is one type of computer based program that has used to browses the
World Wide Web in the methodical that in the orderly fashion or the automated
manner. On the other hand, the term Web crawlers are referring to the automatic
indexers, ants, Web spiders, bots, Web robots, and mostly in the FOAF community
and Web scutters. This method is known as the spidering and Web crawling. Most
of the sites, particularly in the search engine are using the spidering to offer the up
to date data. Mainly, the Web crawlers has used to make a copy of entire visited
page for afterward processing through the search engine that will index entire
downloading pages to offer fast search. Crawlers are also used for the computerize
maintenance task on the website like validating HTML code or checking links.
Crawlers can also use to collect the specific types of information from the Web page
to produce e-mail addresses.
Number of the possible crawlable URLs to be generated by the server side program
has as well made that very difficult for the web crawlers for avoiding retrieving
duplicate content. The endless combinations of the HTTP GET parameters exist, that
just small selection may actually return some unique content. Example, the simple
photo gallery online might give 3 choices to the users, like specified through the
HTTP GET parameters in URL. In case, there exist 4 methods to sort the images,
then three options of the thumbnail size, 2 file formats, as well as option to disable
the user provided content, same set of the content is accessed with around
48different URLs, which are linked on a site. The mathematical combination makes
the problem for the crawlers, since they should sort through the endless
combinations of minor scripted changes to retrieve the unique content.
