This workshop explores how agile project planning occurs and how to estimate features on an agile project. In addition, we’ll examine several popular units of measure for estimation such as story points and ideal hours. Attendees will do an exercise that teaches the concept of Story Points. Attendees will do a planning exercise to estimate story cards using Planning Poker (a variant of wideband Delphi technique.) We’ll conclude with a discussion about issues teaching this material. Attendees will be given a set of Planning Poker cards for future use.
