Generally, there are 5-10 scopes per 6 week project (6 six-week projects per year), and 1-20 tasks per scope. However, it is possible that scopes are more fine-grained, e.g., projects might have 25 scopes and fewer tasks per scope.
Using averages, assuming a scope takes 2 days, the maximum amount of scope you can have in a project = 15 scopes. And, assuming tasks take ~3 hours to complete, the maximum amount of tasks in a project = 80 tasks.
So, for example, a six-week project with 5 scopes = ~50 tasks; and 10 scopes = ~16 tasks.
Trying to apply a heuristic to manage scope hammering. Any thoughts on this logic?
