Poker Planning – Remote & Simple

In this article, I would like to introduce a simple variant of poker planning in a remote context.

There are a variety of tools that enable poker planning. It is generally important to me that participants in poker planning can focus on the content and have to spend with additional tools as little as possible.

The following animated image shows the poker planning process. Participants can use their mouse pointer to make transparent whether they still have questions about the user story or are “ready” for the estimate. If all participants are “Ready”, the Scrum Master counts down “3, 2, 1” and all members of the development team move their pointer to the corresponding story point card.

From my point of view, this is a relatively simple method that does not require much additional instruction.

If you are interested, you can have a look at the example on the following Miro board: click here
