Embrace the Power of Async Planning Poker with Kollabe

Asynchronous Planning Poker Session

In today's fast-paced, distributed work environment, Agile teams face the challenge of collaborating effectively across different time zones and schedules. Kollabe's async Planning Poker feature offers a game-changing solution, enabling teams to estimate tasks and user stories without the need for synchronous meetings. Embrace the flexibility and efficiency of async Planning Poker and take your Agile process to new heights.

The Async Planning Poker Flow in Kollabe

Kollabe's async planning poker feature streamlines the estimation process, making it easy for Scrum masters to set up and manage sessions. To begin, the Scrum master inputs or imports the tickets into the system and shares a unique session link with the team. Team members can then access the session at their convenience, reviewing the tickets, casting their votes, and leaving comments to share their insights.

Throughout the async session, the Scrum master can track the team's progress, review votes, and address any questions or concerns raised in the chat. This approach ensures that everyone has the opportunity to contribute their expertise, regardless of their availability for a live meeting.

For experienced teams, the async process can be remarkably efficient. Once all votes are in, the Scrum master can reveal the results and record the story point values. If there are significant discrepancies in the votes, the team can initiate a discussion in their preferred communication channel, without the need for another meeting.
