In the 21st century, it is not at all uncommon to see a project being scoped out and planned with little consideration given to the team that is expected to execute it.
At Ruffly, we believe, the key to a successful project lies within the team working on it. Thus, we decided to bring people and teams to the forefront of all Ruffly project activities.
Introducing Ruffly Resourcing, a brand new way plan your software projects with people and teams at the heart of the project plan.
The three fundamental components of Ruffly Resourcing are:
This is the amount of effort a person can consume every week.
This is the % of time a person is expected to work on the project. Someone working full-time will have an allocation of 100%.
This is the daily rate of the person, charged to the client. This will be used to compute the total cost of the project.
Each team member is assigned a value across each of these three dimensions. For example, consider the following team.
Each resource has a weekly velocity of 40 story points, a day rate of £400 and their respective allocation towards the project.
Thus, this team can consume: 140 story points of work every week, at a cost of £1,400 per week.
In the coming weeks, we'll be launching integrations with your favourite time tracking tools, such as Clockify and Harvest. Say goodbye to chasing timesheet updates!
