product development with agile


We’re always interested in processes that can aid in product development.

Over the years we’ve used different techniques to engage teams and help with communications with regards to understanding requirements for product development. One of the techniques is planning poker.

Planning poker enables a team to quickly get consensus on the relative size of an item of work. It also enables the team focus on a work item, and a good starting point for exploring the requirements and details of that work item.

At Open Sussex, we came up with a slight twist on Planning Poker - called Estemotion. This uses T-shirt sizes for the relative sizing of work items, but also addes another dimension - team member buy-in.

Head over to our site Estemotion for more details.
