How to make planning poker work for distributed agile teams

Hey guys! So a lot of you must have used planning poker for story sizing during your spring planning or scheduling sessions. It is a very powerful tool to predict how much work a team can get done in a sprint or in the coming few weeks. More importantly though, planning poker is great for the entire team to understand the features and tasks that they will be working on in the coming sprints.

Planning poker works great for teams that are co located, but for teams that are distributed, and don't work from the same office, it might be a tricky exercise to run. Luckily, we have tools that allow teams to run online planning poker meetings as well! In this video I walk you guys through one such exercise. Hope this helps!
