Exercise 14: Team User Story Estimates II

Note: If your feedback for Team User Story Estimates states "Need more User Stories, " your team must create more user stories. So, split the current user stories into as fine-grained a user story as possible. Also, see what is missing. Use some of your Team Meeting to do this, but also have the team members take cards home and fill them out for the next meeting.

As a team, create estimates for the user stories by playing planning poker using the procedure described on pages 48-49 of the book. Go through the estimation process at least one time.

When the team reaches a consensus for the estimate, place the estimate at the bottom of the User Story on a separate line, e.g., "Estimate: 1 day" or "Estimate: 3 days".

Individually, each team member will turn in to Brightspace individual notes that include for each round of planning poker:

If the team cannot reach a consensus, table that User Story and go on to another one.

The notes are due by the end of class. They can be a PDF (print to file from a computing device) or a JPG (picture taken via phone). The notes are for today only. Do not start with the notes from the previous team meeting.

The more you work with the user stories, the more you will find improvements to them. Be sure to make those improvements.
