10X: Program Allocation

About this report

With the Program Allocation report, you can review the load of all teams in your program to understand the distribution/allocation of work. The report shows the Loaded versus Actual story points for each team by sprint. The Loaded row shows the loaded story points for a sprint, while the Actual row shows the accepted story points for a sprint. Also, you can view the Average Team Velocity value for each team.

The Program Totals table at the bottom of the report shows the total story points loaded in the sprint for all teams.

How are report values calculated?

Loaded row color and calculations:

% of capacity = Points Loaded/Average Velocity * 100%

  • White = 0-1% of capacity, the story points loaded were much less than the average velocity.
  • Yellow = 2-89% of capacity, the story points loaded were less than the average velocity.
  • Olive = 90-99% or 101-104% of capacity, the story points loaded were close to the average velocity.
  • Green = 100% of capacity, the story points loaded were equal to the average velocity.
  • Red = 105% and more of capacity, the story points loaded were higher than the average velocity.

 

Actual row color and calculations:

% of capacity = Accepted Stories/Loaded Stories * 100%

  • White = 0-1% of capacity, the story points delivered were much less than loaded.
  • Yellow = 2-89% of capacity, the story points delivered were less than loaded.
  • Olive = 90-99% or 101-104% of capacity, the story points delivered were close to loaded.
  • Green = 100% of capacity, the story points delivered were equal to loaded.
  • Red = 105% and more of capacity, the story points delivered were higher than loaded.

How to interpret this report

Use the report to view the team's performance and determine if the workload is evenly distributed among teams, identify the teams that are overloaded and the teams that are underallocated, and adjust the workload as necessary.
