How to spread workload for a specific skill over multiple sprints?


  • 1 scrum team
  • 3 stages:
    • Analysis
    • Development (skills: JS, functional testing)
    • Testing
  • 1 project with 45 MD JS and 7,5 MD functional testing (in development stage)


When calculating the planning, the workload for functional testing is fully planned in the 1st sprint while the development workload is spread over multiple sprints.

Preferred scenario:

I would like the functional testing to be spread over every sprint where development is planned. I doesn't make sense that the testing is fully done in the first sprint.

A possible option could be the reduce this functional tester's capacity in the team, forcing Portfolio to spread the workload over a longer period of time. However, if I do that, I don't get a realistic situation because in reality this functional tester would be idle.


I'm just starting with Portfolio and I'm trying to implement it for a much bigger team and more complex situation. But making small steps..
