How can I measure estimation VS time spent by individual?

ganna_kyselevych April 22, 2024

Hi, community.


I have the following request:

1. Need to measure time spent VS time estimated on sprint basis by individual.

2. The complexity #1 is that sometimes tasks migrate from one sprint to another, that is why the original estimate not always works for my needs.

3. The complexity #2 is that sometimes tasks are being added to the sprint after start (

4. I use Capacity tracker https://pdffiller.atlassian.net/jira/marketplace/discover/app/capacity-tracker-plugin for sprint estimation and Team Reports for time logging. 

Have troubles only with correct and not manual estimation for the sprint. It is important because our team has KPI Estimation accuracy.

Hi @ganna_kyselevych 

I am curious about your question...

You ask about "VS time", which I am guessing means "value stream time" or some interpretation of lead time or cycle time.

And you note using sprints, and so there is probably a team using Scrum.  What problem are you trying to solve by measuring that number for individuals rather than for the team's work as a whole?

Kind regards,
Bill

This time could be called as "Estimation accuracy" as well.


It means that every team member estimates their tasks for the sprint, then logs real time and the best option when estimation and logged time match or almost match.


What we solve by calculating it by individual: keep every team member accountable for their time, track under- or overutilization of resources. It is one of our individual KPIs. 
We do calculate team KPIs as well, but we do need individuals'. Let's say, the specific of our team.

Wouldn't the leader of the people on the team and the entire team already know this  information from paying attention and asking questions during 1-1 conversations and the daily scrum (stand-up), respectively? 

For example, a forecast is provided, and after repeated daily scrums no concerns are raised and progress seems stalled.  The team and leader should engage to learn why and what they can do to help, perhaps swarming on the challenge to resolve it.

Try using Reports by Jira: https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/features/reports

If that doesn't work, you may have to create a Dashboard in Jira, or use Confluence to store a lot of Advanced Search Jira filters. If this is the case, please include what fields/values you have access to on your tickets, with screenshots, etc.

Reports in Jira do not work because I need statistics by assignee, and these reports do not cover it.

Basically, I can add whatever is needed, coz I have rights of administrator.

If only one person does work on any given ticket, you can make this happen using Jira native (I can elaborate if needed).

Although this has been an ask of Atlassian for years, you must employ one of the time-tracking third-party plugins for most workflows. You can try them for free before paying.

Hi @ganna

I believe your problem can be solved unintendedly by using Jira native or by purchasing a third-party plugin (a demo is available)
