Toronto, Canada. October 20, 2015 – Intelliware Development Inc., an Agile software development services provider, today released its own version of Planning Poker cards to better meet the needs of its customers and partners. The company unveiled the cards at the Toronto Agile Community’s 7th Annual Agile Conference.
These Planning Poker cards reflect Intelliware’s approach to Agile. While most Planning Poker decks follow the standard 52-card deck structure, Intelliware’s 48-card deck has 6 suits, with 8 cards per suit. The cards have been designed this way to address a couple of problems with standard Planning Poker decks: to remove cards with little utility and to add more sets to better accommodate the typical Agile development team.
The Intelliware Planning Poker deck has these 8 cards per set: ½, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13 and 21. There are 6 sets of cards per deck for upwards of 6 estimators. For larger teams, multiple decks can be used.
“Over the years, I’ve collected many decks of custom Planning Poker cards from conferences and events,” said Lawrence Ludlow, Intelliware’s Agile Subject Matter Expert. “As the number of development teams that are becoming Agile continues to accelerate, we thought it was a good time to make our own Planning Poker cards that best reflect our Agile approach, which we have been refining for close to 15 years now.”
Note: Intelliware has a small number of decks available. If you are in the Toronto area and are interested in how you can obtain decks of these Planning Poker cards, please contact us.
