The Fibonacci scale is a series of numbers based on the Fibonacci sequence (0, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, etc.). These numbers are used to estimate and agree upon the amount of effort required to complete a specific task. At the beginning of a sprint, a team will discuss the various tasks that need to be completed and assign points to each task based on the Fibonacci scale.
About the Fibonacci Scale template
What is the significance of the numbers in the Fibonacci Scale?
The numbers in the Fibonacci Scale are based on the Fibonacci Sequence. In this sequence of numbers, each number is the summation of the two previous numbers. In the context of Scrum, the numbers represent the level of complexity and degree of difficulty involved in completing a task.
For example, a task assigned “0” points would be very simple and quick to complete, a task assigned “1” point would be slightly more complex or time-consuming, and so on and so forth. Since the scrum approach generally works in one-week sprints, it’s unlikely that many tasks will be assigned “21.”
Why use the Fibonacci Scale?
The Fibonacci Scale can be a useful tool to ensure that work is distributed evenly and can help ensure that everyone is accurate when estimating the work and time involved in a project. If your team uses this approach on an ongoing basis, you are likely to become more accurate and avoid overcommitting during each sprint.
