We all know how to use Iteration Velocity parameter. However, there are situations during an iteration that one takes an unexpected day off, or there is a bank holiday, or there is another reason for one not to work.
In such situations, you can use Iteration Strength which is kind of a "normalised velocity" that takes into account actual man-days during iteration.
Do you use Iteration Strength in your projects? Is it valuable information for you?
The idea behind the question is that I've heard two opinions:
- "I don't care about the strength, it will all be visible in the velocity after a few iterations"
- "yes, it is the actual team performance"
and I wonder how you feel about it.
