Summary

Agile projects require continuous balancing of the workload across iterations. To support this effort, CNA developed a set of spreadsheets to obtain granular estimates of required work versus resource availability. When the required effort for a given iteration exceeds the team’s work capacity, the spreadsheet highlights the work overload in red. CNA also uses this spreadsheet to track and report project progress across iterations.
