SITUATION: Understand which disciplines are more burdened than others on cross-discipline teams.
POSSIBLE OPTION: When estimating a story, provide a story point estimate for each of the different disciplines. This will then allow the disciplines to understand the amount of work they have specifically vs as a cross-function team.
CAVEAT: Don't use time estimates to solve this problem.
NOTE: This idea scares me a bit, but I'm curious to see how other people have solved this problem. It's something I've recently been throwing around in the back of my head.
EXAMPLE: We have a cross-functional team consisting of (1) game designers (2) client engineers (3) server engineers (4) UI artists (5) VFX artists (6) audio artists (7) quality assurance testers. I need to better understand the distribution of work across those different disciplines during Roadmap Planning, prior to jumping into Sprint Planning. Are our game designers taking on a very large amount of work, while our client engineers are light on tasks? Blanketed story points only provide me a unified view of the work.
