How to use Agile Estimation Deck

Each deck has 55 cards & three sets of cards: "0, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, XS, S, M, L, XL, Infinity, ?". One set is for each member. You can choose to use the Fibonacci Series or T-Shirt sizing.

  1. Each Dev team member gets a unique set of color coded cards
  2. Product Owner has a list of prioritized user stories and explains it to the team along with acceptance criteria
  3. The team asks questions and clarifies any risks or assumptions
  4. Each Dev team member then selects a card representing his/her estimates (doesn’t show)
  5. Upon Scrum Master’s signal all members shows their cards at once
  6. If all estimates are same than that is the estimation to use
  7. If not then the highest and lowest estimators discuss their understanding and assumptions
  8. Repeat the steps 3 to 6 until a consensus is reached
