Our reference tool for Timesheets is Elapseit. Each employee must track every activity in Agile Lab on Elapseit. We have three kinds of activity:

  • Internal: All the activities where demand is coming from Agile Lab itself Fixed Price: This is a customer-oriented project where we assume the project's governance, and we are responsible for the overall delivery, and obviously, we have a budget to fit. How many people we employ is our internal problem.
  • Time & Material: In this case, the customer is paying for the adequate consumed time by our team.


Every year in January is time for budgeting, so any circle and role should have a directly correlated budget to time consumption. Naming Conventions:

  • All the project names that are starting with "Agile" are internal
  • In 2021, all the project names are ending with "2021."

Now let's describe the significant internal activities and when it is acceptable to track time on them:

Agile Architecture

  • Only for the architect role.
  • When you spend time researching some topic or sharing your vision about it.

Agile Engine Management

  • Only for lead links and project leaders of Engine.
  • When you spend time managing the team, 1-1, challenging the process, feeding the handbook.
