The meeting session where product owners/product managers discuss and prioritize backlog items with the rest of the team can be a bit of a drag. But, it’s a great way nonetheless to improve development processes for product teams so they can deliver better products. How do you make them see that?

😓 Problem

Teams usually dream of avoiding the backlog refinement meeting, as they’d rather spend their time doing "real work".

🤔 Why do it?

If you could save your teams a lot of time by skipping endless discussions and putting things into perspective, wouldn’t you do it? How about a process that could be used every time?

🤓 How Foxly can help

The priority planning poker game in Foxly is designed to make meetings quicker, more efficient and a little bit more fun through gamification.

The process

You can speed up the prioritization process with the team using Foxly and Priority planning poker.

  1. You save time by allowing everyone to secretly share their opinion at the same time; then by looking at the average result, you’re including everyone.
Foxly prioritization plugin for Jira allows everyone vote on priorities and shows average result

2. You’re able to spend extra time on outliers by looking at the individual votes on the results page. Then you can discuss those results if the votes are off to ensure everyone’s on the same page.

🤩 Why Foxly is the best for you?

When compared to classic planning poker, where the development team estimates by using story points only, Foxly’s Priority planning poker takes into consideration more than one factor (time estimation of the delivery team).
Foxly allows you to involve stakeholders from various contexts, concluding in better decision-making as to the scope to pick up next.
