Estimation Cheat Sheet - Did I just solve the Story Point Conundrum?

Session Type: Experience/Research Report Track: The Psyche Timebox: 1

One of the million-dollar question which everyone has is What is Story Point? There have been multiple debates, discussions, talks but no one is yet being able to conclusive find out an exchange rate for Story Point. The session attempts to look at an alternative approach for Story point estimation based on the 3 Dimensions (Effort, Complexity & Risk) The idea is to offer a quick and easy way to do a high level estimation and work towards predictability. I will also be talking about 1. Common reasons for Story point Inflation and deflation 2. What to do if story splits across sprints (Which sprint gets a credit or a debit?) This session will also have a small exercise which every participant will have to do as a part of the session. I will be sharing my experiences on this topic based on its application in various projects

Key Takeaways:

The key takeaways from this session would be 1. Better understanding of the overall Agile estimation process 2. Demystifying the Story Point Conundrum 3. Better approach towards predictability 4. How to avoid Story Point inflation?
