Hello "Nara",
welcome to JavaRanch.

We're a friendly group, but we do require members to have valid display names. Specifically without a valid display name you are eligible to win in a book in the running promotion.

Display names must be two words: your first name, a space, then your last name. Fictitious names are not allowed.

Please edit your profile and correct your display name.
Thanks, and have fun!

Regarding your question, our team recently started to use Planning Poker (using these freebie cards), and until now it seems to work quite well.

Jenny and I are very big fans of Wideband Delphi. We wrote a lot about it, along with basic ideas behind estimation and a few other estimation processes, in our first book, Applied Software Project Management.

You can read the whole estimation chapter from Applied Software Project Management for free -- here's the pdf:
