Accumulated Value Estimates

Read more about the general principles of Value estimation here.

If the story is delegated from another circle and value is configured to automatically synchronize, then the displayed value will be set in that circle. Read more about delegation synchronization here.

Warnings

If this alh-replace:typeepic/alh-replace has any warnings regarding the value, then they will be displayed at the top of this box (Read More).

alh-optional:enableKano

Kano Classification

For epics, the customer satisfaction of the alh-replace:typeepic/alh-replace is estimated using the Kano model. Read more about the categories in Kano classification.

If the alh-replace:typeepic/alh-replace is classified as a Must-have, all children will automatically inherit this and be marked as Must-have (if not explicitly set as not Must-haves). Read more about working with Must-haves here

Kano classification cannot be set for releases, sprints and preplanned lists.

Must Have Classification

The alh-replace:typeepic/alh-replace can be classified as being either a Must-have or not a Must-have. If it classified as a Must-have, all children will automatically inherit this and be marked as Must-have (if not explicitly set as not Must-haves). Read more about working with Must-haves here.

Must-have classification cannot be set for releases, sprints and preplanned lists.

Accumulated Must-haves

Accumulated Must-haves shows if any of the children of thealh-replace:typeepic/alh-replace are Must-haves or not. This is to keep a quick overview of where the Must-haves are. If all or some children are Must-haves, the alh-replace:typeepic/alh-replace will be marked with a red or grey Must-have icon.

To give an overview of whether Must-haves are completed or not, accumulated Must-have markers are shown both for the non completed i.e Remaining and for Total. If Remaining has the statement “No children are must-haves” and Total the statement “Some children are must-haves” it means that all the Must-haves beneath this alh-replace:typeepic/alh-replace are completed.

alh-optional:enableBValue

Accumulated Value Estimates

The accumulated value is the sum of all numerical value estimates of the stories/epics below this alh-replace:typeepic/alh-replace. It shows the amount of value (measured in story points or whatever unit that has been chosen for value estimates) for the entire alh-replace:typeepic/alh-replace. Value estimates are both accumulated for the not completed i.e Remaining stories and for all Total stories to give an overview of how much value has not yet been obtained compared with the total amount of value.

alh-optional:enableBValueWorstCase

Accumulated Worst-case Estimates

The accumulated Remaining worst-case estimate of the alh-replace:typeepic/alh-replace is based on all the not completed children below. Depending on whether multiple accumulation methods are allowed (see circle configuration) it is derived either as a simple sum (if children are assumed to be mutually dependent) or using the root-sum-squared method (if children are assumed to be mutually independent). 

The accumulated Total worst-case estimate is deliberately not shown, since it would not be statistically incorrect to use this digit for anything else than uncertainty comparison.

Value Estimation Uncertainty

Uncertainty is the distance between accumulated expected and worst-case value in percentage. The uncertainty is shown for both not completed Remaining stories and for all Total stories to give an overview of how much uncertainty remains – and whether the uncertainty has been reduced compared with the original offset (Total). Read more about working with uncertainties.
