Mitch Lacey's Estimation Game
Estimate and prioritize work tasks.
Mitch Lacey’s Estimation Game is a framework for thinking about and prioritizing work tasks. You can rank tasks by size and priority in order to determine the order in which you should do them. Height determines priority, items that appear at the top of the board should be prioritized.
About the Mitch Lacey’s Estimation Game template
Where did Mitch Lacey’s Estimation Game come from?
This template is based on Mitch Lacey’s Estimation Game as outlined in his book, The Scrum Field Guide: Practical Advice for Your First Year.
How do you use the Mitch Lacey’s Estimation Game template?
Each user story or work task should get a sticky note. Height determines priority, so any high-priority task (whether it’s because of ROI, business value, or some other factor), should be placed at the top of the board. Width indicates complexity, so items on the left are smaller or easier, items on the right are bigger or more complex. Teammates can discuss the placement of stories and agree on their final positions on the board. When you’re finished, you can follow the board in clockwise order to see how tasks should be prioritized.
