How much time would you estimate it would take to convert your card system to a computerized database? :-)
At work the data ends up in an excel spreadsheet so that we can calculate our velocity (an eXtreme Programming thing, which is basically a measure of how much work a team can do per volume time). We use our velocity when planning forward. We only plan as much work as we've been able to complete in the prior iteration. This keeps us from getting overloaded.
