Planning Poker for Dummies


Ankita Kanitkar is working with Tata Consultancy Services Limited as a Software Developer for around four years now. For more than two years she has been practicing Scrum in her project team. Ankita is primarily working on technologies like Java/J2EE and Ruby on Rails. Ankita is a Post Graduate in Computer Application from Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology, Bhopal. She is very enthusiastic about trying out every new thing that comes her way. She has also been a part of a team organizing conferences and workshops at the client relationship level. Apart from work she enjoys singing and event organizing a lot.


Whenever there is some discussion around agile processes there is always a point being raised regarding effective planning and estimation. Most of the people have always struggled with story pointing and how to justify it to the entire team and even the clients. People have also faced challenges in deciding who should participate in the poker planning and who should not, when to do it in order to make it more effective and beneficial, how to do it with distributed teams so on and so forth. I along with the group of colleagues look forward to do this Planning Poker for Dummies as an Interactive Session/ Workshop where the audience will have a feel of the process and methods followed during a real project planning. This would also include explaining the necessity of an effective planning poker for the team as a whole. It would also provide understanding of how Planning poker provides a greater sense of team ownership and how to leverage the collective wisdom of the whole team. The primary focus of this session will be on people who have recently started practicing agile or who wish to start it in near future. It will also act as a refresher for all those who have been practicing agile for quite some time now.



Benefits for the attendees

People will get to know the importance of Planning poker, how to do it and how to benefit out of it both at personal front and for the team as well.
