To calculate time, we have to use estimations. These estimations should be made on each of BA, FE, BE, QA and Deployment areas. One of the methods we can use for estimations is ‘Planning Poker’ method.
The steps are as follows,
- Each member of the team has cards representing different difficulties. (typically 1, 3 and 5)
- Each task is considered in turn. (These tasks can be either Features or Stories)
- Team members decide (in secret) the difficulty.
- Reveal their choices.
- If different, discuss their rationales and choose again.
Likewise, each task weightage can be decided.

Hope that helps! 😊
P.S: This can be done like a game physically! That way is more fun actually. We’ll try doing it soon. 😄
