Scrum Essentials: Exercise in Estimating Relative Effort (Team)


Estimating Relative Effort: A Scrum Team Exercise

Thanks to Tomasz de Jastrzebiec Wykowski for this idea.

Estimating relative effort can be more complex than it looks. In this exercise, you will work with your teammates to explore estimating the effort it would take to throw different objects.

Gather a Scrum team (6 +/- 3 people), and get ready to play planning poker in order to estimate based on the following:

“Given a series of objects, each object must be thrown and must fly at least 3 feet.”
