The iteration planning process is generally a structure that allows the team to generate the list of tasks required to develop the required functionality and determine who will be responsible for each task, but the formality (or lack thereof) of that process can vary significantly. Some teams follow a formal structure, while others use a more ad hoc planning philosophy. The decision for how to structure this process is generally left to the team. The simplest iteration planning technique is the visible pull system known as Kanban Scheduling in which the team determines the set of activities that will be required to complete the iteration and posts them in a display.
2. 6. 1. Team vs. Individual Metrics One of the critical things to watch as you deploy metrics is whether you will measure the entire team or individuals. Remember that the performance of the team as a whole determines the team's success level, so we must gather team metrics. Most agile organizations only measure at the team level because the cohesiveness of the team is critical to its success and applying metrics at an individual level can undermine that cohesiveness. If one member is not performing, the team will recognize that situation without metrics and should manage it themselves as much as possible.
To plan for that activity, make it a task 43 44 for the next iteration and, if that task is assigned to engineering, reserve that part of the team's velocity when selecting the functionality for that iteration. After the cards are developed, they can be prioritized. Priority is affected by the expected benefits and risks, in addition to other factors. In particular, the time frame for the change may cause a high-priority change to be deferred. For most of the cards, strict ordering is not necessary.
