Many organizations live with a belief that multiplying the number of people by average utilization (or performance) results in the team’s capacity. The software world is not so simple and with its complexity, this way of thinking rather builds big teams that don’t deliver much value and makes the management harder. It is important to ask a question on how to increase software development velocity.
This all leads to thinking that the organization should always improve or increase the utilization or hire more people – which is less effective, increases costs, and brings more stress because of extreme focus on wrong metrics.
