Estimating product backlog items using planning poker is the topic for Scrum Dynamics episode 11. In this episode I cover:
The benefits of planning poker: gain a shared understanding of the work, bring diverse perspectives to the estimation process and estimate the work as we learn about the Dynamics 365 system.
Who plays planning poker: the role of Scrum team developers, the product owner and proxy product owners in estimation.
When to play planning poker during each sprint: sprint planning and storytime.
How to play planning poker: describe the requirement, estimate independently, reveal estimations, discuss outliers and play again until a consensus is reached.
Things to do before you play: agree your estimation units and scale, baseline user story and definition of done.a
