28438Re: What's the meaning of "Adjusted Planning Velocity"?
- Apr 3, 2008There are a number of issues in play here. First off Scrum is so
simple and Agile is so lightweight that people are often tempted to
"improve" it with more complex innovations. Virtually all these
mutations are, in my experience, deleterious. Velocity is a simple
empirical observation that is retrospective and helps with longer
range planning. Innovating on that with additional concepts is
unnecessary. Velocity is what it is. Adding layers of complexity adds
no value. For example of you say your velocity is X you are saying
that you observed the team completing X in a given sprint. You can
predict that you will probably deliver X in subsequent sprints. Adding
a multiplier just adds more math without giving you additional
information. People also seem to think that adding to the complexity
of a mathematical equation adds to it's precision. In that case of
velocity calculations that simply isn't the case.
