Scrum Planning Poker Cards Description
Scrum Planning Poker Cards is an app to support a consensus based technique for estimating effort of relative development tasks in software development. In planning poker, members of the Scrum team make estimates by playing numbered cards face down, instead of speaking them aloud. Cards are revealed and teams members discuss the estimates. By hiding the figures in this way, the group avoids the influence of the other participants – Scrum Planning Poker Cards should force people to think independently and propose their numbers simultaneously.
Using a tailored Fibonacci sequence (0, 1 , 2 , 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 100) with additional wildcards (?, coffee break, no clue, too big) team members can weigh the complexity and effort involved in developing functionality in their Scrum planning sessions. The reason for using the Fibonacci sequence is to reflect the inherent uncertainty in estimating larger items.
Scrum teams use this app instead of physical card decks. Scrum Planning Poker Cards replace physical cards when teams are not in the same geographical locations. They can, of course, be used instead of physical cards on any occasion.
This is a simple and useful scrum planning poker app. Improve your sprint planning meetings, by making them more effective and fun. This app is designed for both iPhone and iPad and means you always have cards handy. It’s also a handy addition to our Scrum training such as the Professional Scrum courses.
