Yes, yes! Great question. I have been trying to give tools to my Leads to enable them to determine how loaded each resource is at sprint planning. We take on enough parent issues to satisfy our current velocity (# of points). However, we also create subtasks for each parent issue (say, Story)...during the exercise with the team, it is hard to determine how many hours Joe, Bill, Frank, and Sally have. Our approach is all manual labor to go through and add up the number of hours (time remaining) each individual has. Our goal is to stack up each resource to 40-60h of work each two-week sprint (depends on how much production support load - some resources manage production helpdesk fixes, while others are able to push out 60 good hours of new work each sprint.
In summary, how do you (the community) quickly determine how many hours each individual has? And are there other approaches to this problem as Jay suggests:-)?
