  1. I am curious as to how the group knows the story well enough to be able to accurately estimate it in less than a minute? What kind of preparation is done before the estimation meeting?

    • Alex,

      The team doesn’t spend too much time doing any specific preparation before estimating stories. Since we know that estimates are just that, estimates, we spend just enough time on them to be useful to the team.

      – Clayton
