Planificación Canina

Duración: 10 minutos


Uno a la vez, muestre a los participantes cada uno de los siguientes nombres de razas de perro, de forma que cada uno vote mostrando una carta de estimación:

  • Chihuahua – es la raza de perros más pequeños y debe servir como referencia para la estimación. Las restantes razas deben ser estimadas de forma relativa a esta
  • Gran danés – las estimaciones deben ser grandes
  • Golden Retriever – las estimaciones deben ser medianas o grandes
  • Caniche – los participantes deberían pedir más información. Ej: es un caniche estándar o un caniche toy?
  • Terranova – es una raza no tan conocida; aquellos que no la conocen no deberían votar y deberían en su lugar realizar preguntas al respecto
  • Guildenbaur austríaco – esta es tramposa ya que esta raza no existe. Los participantes no deberían realizar estimaciones

Puntos de aprendizaje:

  • Este ejercicio sirve para familiarizar a los participantes con el uso de cartas de estimación
  • Quienes estiman no deberían ser influenciados por otros
  • Los ítems son estimados de forma relativa unos con otros, usando NUTs (Nebulous Units of Time)
  • Los participantes no deberían estimar aquellos ítems que no conocen. Deberían pedir clarificación o en el caso que no comprendan aquello que estiman, deberían abstenerse de hacerlo

    Hi Folks, I have a few questions about the doggy planning game:

    - Do you need to show actual pictures of the dogs or do you just need story cards with the dogs names?
    - I guess another learning point is that the game emphasises the relative size aspect of story points

    Thanks for making this resource available.

    Kind Regards

    Hi Russell,

    Thanks for your comment!
    No, I do not ever show pictures of the dogs. Although, I just realized that the write-up does not make that clear. I will update it.
    It works better when voters are just giving their best guess at the relative size based on their current knowledge. This makes it easier to correlate to software features. I also like it when I get people voting on the poodle based on their initial assumptions (toy vs. standard). The votes expose the assumptions, so we clarify and re-vote. Having pictures of the poodle would make it harder to expose this.
    With lesser known dogs, like the Newfoundland, some voters will actually google the dog in order to show others what it looks like before the re-vote. Again, a picture would prevent this.

    I totally agree that relative sizing should be a learning point. I don’t know why I missed it. I’ll update that too!

    Thanks for the great feedback Russell!

    This seems like an unnecessarily complicated derivative of using simple numbers or blocks to show relative size. Unless the entire team is made up of dog-lovers who know the different types of dogs and their relative sizes, why confuse things. I would definitely never introduce a team to planning poker with this model.

    If you want to get cutesy, then well-known animals would be better: ant, spider, mouse, dog, horse, elephant.

    The idea of having unknown animals is to have people thinking about it.
    When we start working on a software, we receive a list of requirements that we have never heard about it. So we need to ask and collaborate to get the needed knowledge to work and estimate with more accuracy.

    Interesting idea, but I don’t think you have expressed it as clearly as you might have.

    On first read I thought the dogs were the planning poker options rather than the stories.
