My projects use Portfolio Themes to align Initiatives to the Themes. Epics roll-up to Initiatives, Stories roll-up to Epics, etc. We estimate in Story Points and do not capture work hours.
What values are used to calculate Theme "Estimate" and "Actual"? Summed Story Points? Issue Counts? What? The documentation mentions "sums all backlog items", "actual time spent", "work that has been logged." So, what is being counted?
Hi @Matthew Leach,
I think this is part of a larger problem when reporting with story points, even a basic rollup within the same team is inaccurate (2 stories worth 2SP are not necessarily equal to one story worth 4SP).
That aside, I understand cross-team SP values might change but the possible solutions are limited. A possibility would be to have a per-team "SP conversion ratio" that help manage differences.
Let me know what you think!
Agreed on the conversion or maybe even a count of issues option. I think for usability the themes report just needs to make it more apparent how it’s calculated. When I reviewed the documention for it, it’s unclear and I had to go look it up in community responses. Appreciate you taking the time to review.
