Relative Estimation

Strive for normalized approach to story effort / size estimation.

If you are not there yet, and you are the scrum master or release train engineer, then you will help your team(s) get to Normalized approach to estimation — a common approach to estimation — set only once at the beginning/starting point /re-set point when the teams/trains do not have yet a historical velocity, or, the teams on the train got various approaches to estimation creating a scenario wherein there are wild variations of estimates across the train (this scenario needs a re-set to a starting point with a common approach to estimation). There is an approach to this and this approach also has an effect of normalizing velocity of all teams across the train… and with historical velocity known, and team capacity and capacity allocation known, estimating as to when a story can be done is possible.
