Our Epic Board Delivery Plan
Once we had created a backlog using the mindmap, it was really easy to estimate. We stack ranked the Epics into a prioritised list showing how we expected to deliver them and then estimated each against Size (T-Shirt Size) and Complexity (Low, Medium and High).
The Epics were colour coded (Blue represents Tech work, Yellow customer features) and we overlaid monthly timeboxes to provide capacity limits and then simply built our delivery plan.
The final task was to identify our release points. Dependancies were added to the board to cover the release or the Epics we planed to deliver that month.
