This session would be focused on estimations. We provide some estimations daily, even though we are confused and really not confident while providing estimations or afraid of providing estimations as we think that our estimations might be wrong. 

Especially in agile, teams are confused with “Hour estimation Vs Size estimation” what to do and when to do. If we need to estimate in size, then how?

With help of a game, we will try to understand estimations and what is the size of some feature/story? Is it 2, 3, or 20? What does that number mean?
