Launching Estimoji

Need an easy and fun way for scrum teams to go through the time estimation ritual remotely?

It’s no secret, many companies and teams are working remotely from home right now and this makes some tasks less efficient, less interactive and less fun.

We at NGTI are happy to announce that we have created the solution to one of these problems, namely going through the scrum estimation process remotely, with our Estimoji Platform. 

This platform came to be because we were looking for a tool that would help remote scrum teams to easily estimate the time needed for the next tasks, however we were not able to find one that could suit our needs and thus we decided to create one ourselves.

Estimoji allows the scrum team to assign the actual effort needed to complete the story point by voting using cards with an emoji on it, this estimoji reflects their feeling about the amount of effort needed to complete the story point. The scrum team will then be able to see the average value of the story point together with an emoji label. 

This makes it a lot clear for the stakeholders that a story labelled as 🤯would require quite a lot of effort to complete.

We have noticed that our scrum teams started discussing more enthusiastically why they assigned a certain value. Which lead to all the team members ending up on the same page.
