Resource Planning in UX Roles?

HI Everyone,

My team and I are trying to figure out how many resources we need for a year. Forecasting our time has proven difficult, because internally to our organization our time is not tracked hourly, but is known as Business As Usual, which usually denotes coming off of a bottom line SOMEWHERE, but it's not specific to a specific project per se.

There in lies the problem.

Quality Indicator

Hi, I am currently trying to design a visualization for "Quality Indicator" (QI). The QI shall represent the quality of the data that has been loaded in to the software. I have a couple of preliminary thoughts -

1. A circle which shows a traffic light signal (red/yellow/green). This however would be a problem for the colorblind folks.

2. Signal bars - a set of 5 bars with increasing height (typically used in mobile phones to show the strength of the signal). Whether the bar is filled with a color depends on the quality of the input data.
