Increase your level of precision in estimating how long tasks can be done by applying the right effort estimate model for projects and your task.
Creating and using different effort measurement forms for each type of project and tasks you work on using Effort Templates, it’s easy and straightforward.
Use different and most popular Agile methods to estimate and predict the effort needed to work and finish your projects with your team.
Assess the size and complexity of the task and assign points that will help manage your team's effort to fulfill assignments.
Use effort templates better describing the challenge of working on each task. Easy, medium, hard, S, M, XXL, 1- 100 pts, you name it!
Whether you like to start with the most difficult or easy tasks, now you can evaluate that easier, using the best template for GitScrum Task Efforts on projects.
Be smarter and specific on delivering each task your team can work on based on skill and each task challenge level you can describe on your Task Effort Templates.
Get the features you need without all the bloat. GitScrum is simple, fast, and easy to use.
In Agile, the effort is a more accurate estimate measurement form to predict how long it will take to finish your projects, rather than using estimates to complete work based on time.
Understanding the Fibonacci scale (1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21) is a great way to start to do estimates to complete the tasks with your team. Another method that can be used to define the right task for the most competent team member to finish the task is using T-shirt sizes (S, M, L, XXL). T-shirt sizes are great because each size needs to fit the knowledge and skill one has to work on with efficiency. You can do both of them as a template to use in your project boards.
After you create the Effort template for your projects on project settings, all you have to do is select the template to estimate the effort for each task inside the workflow. When you access the project boards, create your workflow tasks, click on the task block, you already can mention the effort that will take.
While distributing tasks among your team, planning the task distribution in a planning poker session, your team comes up with the estimates for how long it takes to work on a task (here’s where your estimate model plays a part). As humans, we are awfulFor example, easy to predict the effort to complete a task based on time. That’s why we estimate tasks with more tangible things like object sizes. Then we distribute the task for each team member with a better understanding of the work complexity level, making more accurate predictions to define deadlines for work completion.
If you don’t want to get in trouble giving a challenging task for a team member with a low level of skill to work on, or wasting time finding that your task will take longer to complete than your deadline based on time guesses, having a template for better forms of estimates handy is a great idea. You can select a different template with a further estimate form if the one you choose isn’t working.
You can create an unlimited number of effort templates for your estimates and use them on your project boards and workflow as you wish. Do different effort templates for each project. Use only one effort template as an estimated base for all your projects.
