Justinmind breaks down the difference. Here at Justinmind we have two clear objectives:. Anushree Sapre. First, planning poker brings together multiple expert opinions to do the estimating. Alex Jr Valtierra.
Anyone in the meeting can turn the timer over at any time. When the sand runs out in two minutes , the next round of cards is played. But someone can immediately turn the timer over, again limiting the discussion to two minutes.
The timer rarely needs to be turned over more than twice. Over time this helps teams learn to estimate more rapidly. Smaller Sessions It is possible to play planning poker with a subset of the team, rather than involving everyone. The best way to do this is to split the larger team into two or three smaller teams, each of which must have at least three estimators.
It is important that each of the teams estimates consistently.
What your team calls three story points or ideal days had better be consistent with what my team calls the same. To achieve this, start all teams together in a joint planning poker session for an hour or so. Have them estimate ten to twenty stories. Then make sure each team has a copy of these stories and their estimates and that they use them as baselines for estimating the stories they are given to estimate.
When to Play Planning Poker Teams will need to play planning poker at two different times. First, there will usually be an effort to estimate a large number of items before the project officially begins or during its first iterations.
Estimating an initial set of user stories may take a team two or three meetings of from one to three hours each. Second, teams will need to put forth some ongoing effort to estimate any new stories that are identified during an iteration.
One way to do this is to plan to hold a very short estimation meeting near the end of each iteration. Normally, this is quite sufficient for estimating any work that came in during the iteration, and it allows new work to be considered in the prioritization of the coming iteration.
Alternatively, Kent Beck suggests hanging an envelope on the wall with all new stories placed in the envelope. As individuals have a few spare minutes, they will grab a story or two from the envelope and estimate them. Teams will establish a rule for themselves, typically that all stories must be estimated by the end of the day or by the end of the iteration.
I like the idea of hanging an envelope on the wall to contain unestimated stories.
First, planning poker brings together multiple expert opinions to do the estimating. Because these experts form a cross-functional team from all disciplines on a software project, they are better suited to the estimation task than anyone else.
Second, a lively dialogue ensues during planning poker, and estimators are called upon by their peers to justify their estimates. This has been found to improve the accuracy of the estimate, especially on items with large amounts of uncertainty Hagafors and Brehmer Being asked to justify estimates has also been shown to result in estimates that better compensate for missing information Brenner et al. This is important on an agile project because the user stories being estimated are often intentionally vague.
Group discussion is the basis of planning poker, and those discussions lead to an averaging of sorts of the individual estimates. Planning Poker in detail. Flag for inappropriate content.

The importance of the characters of the popular saga reflected the possible size of the development objective that had to be estimated. This spiced things up and made them more engaging, but there was still more to be done.
Great task for the designers, who had some fun creating different cards for everyone. Which character should be assigned the highest number of points and which one the lowest?
The favorite or least favorite? In some cases, it was a matter of physical stature, which certainly has an impact from a design or an aesthetic point of view: Bernat and Carles went for other Japanese manga series, One Piece and Kinnikuman aka Muscle Man , but they assigned points according to the strength of the characters: Planning Poker cards by Redbooth At Redbooth we have many fun traditions like Elegant Wednesday, home made lunches or going to the countryside to work on cool stuff for a week.
Here is what each card means: Just because it rhymes with Cinco in Spanish: In other words to find yourself in a pickle. Why is it always vegetables, by the way?
