Enter the total number of points and the number of sprints in the scrum to determine the scrum velocity.

Scrum Velocity Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Scrum Velocity.

SV = #P / #SS

  • Where SV is the scrum velocity (points/sprint)
  • #P is the total number of points completed
  • #SS is the number of sprints in the scrum

To calculate scrum velocity, divide the number of points by the number of sprints in the scrum.

What is a Scrum Velocity?

Definition:

A scrum velocity measures the rate at which points are completed in a scrum on a points per sprint basis.

How to Calculate Scrum Velocity?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate Scrum Velocity.

First, determine the total number of points completed. In this example, the points is found to be 600.

Next, determine the number of sprints in the scrum. For this problem, the number of sprints is found to be 3.

Finally, calculate the Scrum Velocity using the formula above:

SV = #P / #SS

SV = 600 / 3

SV = 200 points/scrum
