At the beginning it is not so easy to evaluate tasks, but after each sprint you will get better and better with your evaluation.
As a whole team, you go through all the tasks one by one and everyone gives a time estimate to complete this task.
Your estimations can look like this:
0: It is already done.
>8: It would take more than one day.
?: I don’t know is an abstention so to speak
The persons with the largest and smallest numbers are asked why they estimate this task in this way.
Afterwards you can either:
– Everyone can give a new estimation again and the average is taken
– or you make a free vote to agree on a value.
The tasks will be marked with this number on your board.
Usually tasks that take more than 8 hours are divided into smaller tasks.
