Over and Under Utilized Resources

Day 150.

Refer to the picture below. An example of over and utilized resources (in this case, the roads). Think of the road as your agile teams… the cars are the stories they need to finish. The over utilized team ( the road with lots of cars) will have their stories finishing later compared to the under utilized team. However, the under utilized team ( 1 car in the picture) will have a lower throughput ! Not cool. T

he key is around 80% utilization of resources!
