Planning Poker

One of the most commonly adopted Agile estimation techniques is planning poker. Within project management, development teams utilize planning poker, often referred to as "scrum poker" or "pointing poker," as a gamified technique for estimating the effort involved in project tasks. Team members cast anonymous votes for estimating an item using uniquely numbered playing cards. The process is repeated until the entire team reaches a consensus about the accurate estimation. The distinctive feature of these estimates lies in their enhanced accuracy and engagement, as they derive from the collective input and consensus of the entire team.
