Planning Poker, also known as Scrum poker, is a technique to estimate the relative size and complexity of tasks in a software development project. It’s a playful approach used in agile project management to encourage the team’s communication and collaboration.

Planning Poker helps teams to agree on how much work is needed to complete a task. Team members use cards to vote on the amount of effort required and then discuss the results together. It offers a structured and efficient way to estimate effort based on a shared understanding of the task. This helps to ensure that estimates are more accurate and complete.

Use the /planningpoker command in Slack to open the app, enter game details in the pop-up form, click the game link and start playing on the website.

  1. Click on the “Add to Slack” button on our landing page.
  2. Allow the app access to your workspace.
  3. Once the app is installed, you can start a new game from within your Slack workspace with the slash command /planningpoker.

The voting system represents a unit to estimate topics. You are free to add your own meaning to the numbers and sizes. For instance, numbers could represent hours, days, or a level of difficulty.

The Fibonacci system uses numbers from the Fibonacci sequence (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, etc.) and is often used in Planning Poker.

With Powers of 2 (1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, etc.) you get more detailed estimations of the work needed.

With the T-Shirt sizes system (XS, S, M, L, XL) you can indicate the size of a task. It’s perfect for teams that are not familiar with the other systems.
