Instructions for the Agile Marketing Sprint Calculator:
In the Total Work Hours column, enter the total number of hours each team member is expected to work during the sprint period. For a full-time employee, you would typically enter 40 hours for a one-week sprint, 80 hours for a two-week sprint, etc. However, for a part time employee you’ll need to adjust the hours accordingly. Next, use the PTO and Holidays column to enter the number of hours each employee plans to be out during the sprint. Finally, enter the total number of hours each individual expects to spend in meetings or doing administrative work (i.e., email, ad hoc tasks, planning, or anything other than sprint work during work hours).
The resulting totals can then be used to gauge how many hours of sprint work you can add to your coming sprint. These totals can also be used as performance metrics––over time you can use them to benchmark individual and team-wide efficiency, based on your total availability (or allocation percentage) for strategic sprint work vs. non-strategic work.
