Velocity is perhaps the most useful metric available to agile teams. In this presentation, Certified Scrum Trainer Mike Cohn describes advanced uses of velocity for planning under special but common circumstances. You’ll see how to forecast velocity in the complete absence of any historical data. You will look at how a new team can forecast velocity by looking at other teams. You will see how to predict the velocity of a team that will grow or shrink in size. Most importantly you will look at the use of confidence intervals to create plans we can be 90% confident in, even on fixed-price or fixed-date contracts.
