This is a step-by-step facilitation guide with Miro and PPT templates for running a workshop "Agile Estimation and Forecasting". This workshop was previously known as "Relative Estimation in Agile Teams".

Teach your team why and how we use a different method of estimation in an agile environment and how to use them to create delivery plans.

This workshop has been created from scratch and has been run by many different teams in different organizations with a lot of success.



The purpose of this workshop is to introduce an audience to how to properly estimate and plan in an Agile environment and show them how to do it well.

This will be a great workshop to run with a new team who is not very familiar with tools like Planning Poker or metrics like velocity.

In addition, it is a great refresher workshop for a team that has been running for a while to remind them why we do relative estimation in an Agile environment, instead of estimating in hours.

The workshop highlights important principles and reiterates the values of agility through teaching about estimation.


Why use this tool?

This facilitation guide is a great addition to your Scrum Master's toolbox.

It gives you all the tools you need to run a highly engaging and effective workshop with minimal preparation and little stress.

And it is ready for facilitation with handy tools like Miro for remote teams, and a PPT presentation for in-person workshops.

The workshop includes the key topics needed to understand not only estimation, but velocity metrics, and creating forecasts and plans for stakeholders:
