Laura Janusek
Summary: 

How long will that take? It’s a question we’ve all either asked or been asked, and it can be a challenge to answer accurately. How long will it take to get that feature out the door? How much time would you need to build this kind of software? How many developers would we need to get this project done in three months? Join Laura Janusek as she explores the tools and strategies to effectively use Planning Poker — the agile, consensus-based estimation technique — to generate accurate, data-backed responses to those questions. Attendees will gain insight into the process with real-world examples and tips from an experienced agile product owner and manager. They will learn how to use Planning Poker for a range of project types and team structures, how to leverage free online tools like a project-planning pro, and how to make the estimation process feel less like a chore and more like a game!
