About this report

The story point progress by team report compares the variation of planned and accepted story points by team during one or more program increments. The report displays the data in the form of a dual-bar chart grouped by time period. It is beneficial to review the report regularly to assist in making future work commitments for highly predictable teams and identify any negative trends early.

The chart shows data for teams with a type of Agile only. Kanban team data is not included.

  • The green points accepted bar for each team shows the sum of effort points from accepted stories assigned to the selected program increment.
  • Orphan stories that do not have a parent feature, but are assigned to the selected PI(s), are included in each bar on the chart.

  • Kanban teams are not included in the report.


How to interpret this report

At the end of each PI, during the program retrospective, this report should be reviewed to determine how teams are progressing as it relates to the previous reporting period. This report will assist in future workload commitments by identifying highly predictable teams and identify negative trends early to allow for adjustments to be made to greatly improve the chance of delivering on commitments. In addition, this report provides the ability to quickly export the data for any ongoing status reporting.
