Play this estimation game with your team at the start of your next planning session. Get everyone to estimate making a cup of tea and then ask them the where, who, what questions.

Recognise the similarities and differences, what assumptions did you make?

Consider how this might apply to your own scenario and the estimations you are about to make, or review.

Use it to get everyone talking about estimation for the solution you are planning. Use it to help ensure the team have a shared and clear understanding of the measures, points, ranges, sizes, categories and definitions by which you will estimate and prioritise tasks.
