Padding cards Closed Mon 23 Sep 2019 4:03PM
For all current projects, regardless of how they’ve been estimated, we ask production team members to allocate 6 days of cards to themselves per sprint.
Now we want to also have production members allocate (they can create them or copy them from a template) 4 days of QA cards too (these will be QA/overspill/safety but need to have a name such as ‘QA & Testing’ that partners can see).
The aim of a sprint then is not to complete 6 days of cards in 10 days. It is to complete 10 days of cards in 10 days (with 4 of these being QA cards).

This will be a bigger change for production, but if we can get this working will give clarity to ops and help us support production earlier. That's a big win
