I’m in a lot of agile planning meetings, and a major part of any meeting is spent estimating agile story points and determining the amount of work for a story. Deciding how much work there is for a team to do is actually an important task of a successful planning meeting! We often use Fibonacci numbers and it seems to work well, but I never knew why. So I decided to do a little research.
In math, the Fibonacci sequence follows the following integer sequence:
1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144… Can you guess the next one?
