This Agile Estimation talk session resulted into a very interactive session with participation from most of the professionals attending the event. The program mainly focussed on

  • Estimating things – sizing or Software Development Estimation.
  • In Agile, how do we estimate the size of the work against the work requirement?
  • How to play Planning Poker?

 

During the session one of the attendees came up with a very interesting and a significant question which got answered giving real life examples.

How do yous size a work using Planning Poker, where work is simple, but needs to be repeated at many places? Do you see it on the basis of the type of work (simple/complex) or do you size it on the basis of quantum of work?

The answer to this question is. We do it on the basis of the quantum of work because “size is a substantive input for the Agile Release Planning”.
