Poker Planning: how to improve your sprint and estimating accuracy
A practical workshop involving the audience in the process of poker planing.
Participants will be able to go step by step through several sessions using the poker planning methodology on a fictional project, make typical mistakes and find out the pros and cons of this method from their own experience.
Participants will also learn how to improve the estimation accuracy and manage planning sessions so that they do not 'go three books' but 'fly the eagles'.

This time we will consider in more detail the process of the game and the results obtained. Using examples from our game, I will tell you about balancing of game components in the workflow.
You will learn:
- how to start the game and do not fall out of the race;
- how to manage the game in unforeseen situations and how to evaluate its effectiveness;
- how the game influenced our project and each individually;
- how the tester became the Guardian of the game :)
In addition, I will talk about how else you can use gamification, and when it is better not to use it at all.
