As an Agile team, you know that effective task estimation is crucial for successful project delivery. That's where Kollabe's Planning Poker tool comes in, empowering your team to leverage the power of story points for more accurate and collaborative estimation.

Understand the Story Point Options

When it comes to story point estimation, Agile teams typically rely on a few common approaches. Kollabe's Planning Poker tool supports a range of these options, allowing you to choose the one that best fits your team's preferences and project requirements.

Fibonacci Sequence

The Fibonacci sequence (1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, etc.) is a popular choice for story point estimation. This series of numbers reflects the exponential nature of task complexity, making it well-suited for Agile projects where tasks can vary significantly in effort.

Modified Fibonacci Sequence

The Modified Fibonacci sequence (1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 20, 40, etc.) is a variation of the standard Fibonacci sequence that includes additional values to accommodate larger tasks. This approach provides more granularity for estimating complex stories.

T-Shirt Sizes

For teams that prefer a more intuitive approach to estimation, T-shirt sizes (XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL, etc.) can be an effective option. This scale simplifies the estimation process by using familiar sizes to represent the relative complexity of tasks.

Power of 2

Another common approach is to use a power of 2 sequence (1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, etc.). This simplified scale can be easier for some teams to grasp, while still capturing the relative differences in task complexity.

Custom Point Values

Kollabe also allows you to customize the story point values used in your Planning Poker sessions. This flexibility enables your team to adopt a scale that aligns with your organization's unique needs and preferences.
