A tool for helping your team estimate their product backlog items
Help your team estimate their product backlog or user stories by giving them each a deck of planning poker cards. Each pack contains 5 decks, colour coded for ease of use and distribution.
Estimation is traditionally a very difficult, painful and time-consuming activity for teams. Planning poker can help teams get into a habit of creating more consistent, predictable and cohesive estimates by including everyone’s opinion, reducing anchoring and groupthink and helping them create benchmarks which they can compare future estimates to.
Planning poker will help a team create a velocity that can be used to gauge a team’s capacity and reduce the psychological game-playing associated with traditional estimation methods.
Planning poker is a fun way to engage the whole team and make the estimation process more consistent and efficient.
With this resource you will learn:
- Involve the whole team in estimation
- Speed up and re-energise your estimation process
- Improve consistency of estimates
- Create a team's velocity
If you are a ScrumMaster, this deck of coaching cards contains over 50 questions to give you a quick and easy way to generative a fresh perspective, some coaching inspiration, some ideas to encourage reflection and change and help in tackling tricky situations.
