gamified agile effort estimation


PlanningPoker.com (the new redesign) is born!

Press article here.

users: remote agile teams

problem: remote effort estimation sessions are bulky and time-consuming

goal: enable faster team effort pointing, leading to more available development time

agile team outcomes: 

  • add or import user stories for estimation “game”

  • invite team members to a game

  • estimate effort for stories using different and custom point scales

  • add, edit, remove, drag and drop user stories

  • track and measure velocity

  • manage average velocity vs. manual input

  • export results (.csv)

lessons learned: 

  • don’t build every single thing your customers request from support

  • a little swag goes a long way at trade shows

Then we discuss input ports, which allows us to explore what data we have. Only when we know whether we can meet user needs with the data we have, do we worry about the processing and architecture.

This approach lets us split up and parallelize work, using test- and behavior-driven design. And that's how we build a full end-to-end data product in two days.
