Planning Poker is not always the best tool for the job

Using Planning Poker and going into details about each story is perfect for refinement when you need good clarity before starting a sprint.

However, when planning work for a longer horizon and estimating many stories, it's easy to get lost in details when discussing a single story.

That's why having more than one tool for the job is essential.

Silent Estimation by Smart Guess allows teams to estimate large number of stories faster

For longer planning horizons, teams use Bucket Estimation and move fast

With Bucket Estimation, teams more easily leave detailed discussions for later, perfect for long-term planning.

Finding the correct 'bucket' for each story comes naturally, meaning teams estimate large backlogs faster using this method.
