Spend Less Time on Your Estimates
Most teams would rather work to deliver value to customers than spend time estimating stories. In order to spend less time estimating and more time delivering value to the customer, many teams have adopted “Affinity Estimation”. Using “Affinity Estimation” many teams have significantly reduced the time required to estimate and I have personally been involved in sessions that used to take 60 minutes and are now taking 15 minutes. By using “Affinity Estimation” to compare new stories to real stories that were recently completed, teams are able to quickly and confidently provide an estimate without lengthy discussions and worries of the unknown.
What to Expect
The session will begin with a brief presentation highlighting everyday problems that coaches deal with when estimating stories. Then, using volunteers from the audience, we will work through a series of exercises/games demonstrating the value of "Affinity Estimation" while teaching the audience and the volunteers how to coach these exercises for their own teams.
All Teams are Not Created Equally
This session will provide you with exercises that you can use for existing teams, as well as, new teams.
