Planning Poker – Inflation of Story Points

Convener: Susanne Albinger
Discussions and Ideas:
  • Story points are only important for long term planning
  • Ignore story points for sprint planning
  • Fear of estimating too low: put no pressure on the team, if they finish earlier, just take in another story
  • Use animals instead of numbers
  • The discussion and common understanding is the most  important thing in the planning poker -  not the number => make this clear to the team
  • Use T-Shirt sizing and measure the average time it takes to get a story of a size done => tool to plan ahead
