      I don't understand what you are getting at. Could you please elaborate?

        I didn't see anything in Ron's post suggesting that he wasn't able to help
        those teams.

        Well, yes - just dumping it on the sprint burndown is probably not the most
        effective way to use a trendline; it's certainly nothing I would suggest to
        do.
