Dependency Poker is an Agile game — similar to planning poker — that enables teams to identify and manage dependencies in the development process. It can be utilized in Backlog Refinement or SAFe’s PI Planning to enhance collaboration and reduce project risks.
To play Dependency Poker, your team must create or obtain cards representing different types of dependencies. These are used in the first step to identify dependencies between software components or features. The second set of cards, strategy cards, are used to find effective solutions for managing dependencies and mitigating risks.
