In the second of the AND: Elevenses series, Kelly Cook, Agile Coach at AND Digital, will explore the challenges Agile teams face in estimating their work remotely and how a simple game and an everyday analogy can help to overcome them.
Estimating remotely is especially difficult when teams haven’t been working together for very long and even more challenging when team members and stakeholders are new to Agile and some of its techniques.
In this session, Kelly will discuss and demonstrate how adding a playful activity into your estimation practice can help teams to understand the real value of it, including:
Why remote estimation can be tricky
How your fruit bowl is an effective analogy for Agile estimating
How you can run this activity with your team remotely

In our collective new normal of working from home, we’ve noticed ourselves just how easy it is to lose track of time and find yourself working without sufficient breaks. Without these, we all know how fast productivity, focus and wellbeing can dwindle.
So, to help break up your day, we’ve launched AND Elevenses: snappy, 45-minute live webinar sessions where you can learn new skills, network with others and take some time out from your working day. Why not put the kettle on, cut yourself some cake, and join us at 11am each Thursday?
