Business Value Poker (BVP) by 21Leadership is a fun and engaging way of assessing the value of a potential initiative (project, feature, user story, etc.). BVP was originally developed by Kristian Haugaard and Martin Ellemann Olesen and is built on same principles as Agile Planning Poker.
BVP is a consensus-based technique used to estimate the value of an initiative in an agile development environment. During a BVP session, participants (players) are each given a deck of cards with values representing the business value ranging from 0 to 1,000. The goal of BVP is to encourage active participation and collaboration among players, and to arrive at a shared understanding of the expected business value of completing a task.
There are several benefits to using Business Value Poker:
The latest edition contains Business Value cards ranging from 1,000 down to 21. A set also includes a new Golden Star card that can be assigned any meaning the group finds beneficial. Examples of use are must-win battles, breakthrough projects, or even compliance work. A set also contains a question mark and a trash can card.
Another new feature in this edition is the option of using the cards for Planning Poker or T-shirt Sizing Poker by turning the cards on their head. In this way, you only need one set of cards to prioritize work ranging from big bets to bite-size sprint backlog items.
A deck of Business Value Poker cards consist of 72 cards (6 sets of 12 cards per player). They can also double as Planning Poker and T-shirt Sizing Poker cards.
A deck costs DKK 200 or €27 ex. VAT including postage and packaging. Fill out the form below to order:
