Team Velocity

Team Velocity is a metric that measures the rate at which a team completes work on a specific project or set of tasks. It is typically used in Agile software development methodologies to track the progress of a team over time, and to identify areas where the team could improve its performance.
The formula for team velocity is:

Team Velocity = (Number of Completed Tasks / Number of Team Members) / Time Period

It is calculated by dividing the number of completed tasks by the number of team members, and then dividing that number by the time period (usually measured in weeks). The resulting number represents the average number of tasks completed per team member per week.

For example, if a team of 5 people completed 20 tasks in 2 weeks, the team velocity would be: (20 tasks / 5 team members) / 2 weeks = 2 tasks per team member per week.

Team velocity can be used to set realistic expectations for the completion of future tasks, and to identify areas where the team may need to improve its performance, such as through better communication, process improvements, or additional training.
It’s also important to note that team velocity can be influenced by many factors, such as team size, task complexity, and availability of resources, so it’s important to track it over time and compare it against the historical data to identify trends and patterns.
