According to Wikipedia, Planning poker “is a consensus-based technique … mostly used to estimate effort or relative size of user stories.”
Everybody in a team make estimates by quietly placing numbered cards face-down. Once everybody has put down a card, the cards are revealed and the estimates discussed.
This allows each team member to make an independent estimate that can then be compared to reveal alternate interpretations and assumptions.
Although Planning Poker is mostly used by Agile teams, any team can use it.
To improve the already hard process of estimating software projects. Planning Poker will help your team make more accurate estimates and get better results.
