Progress Poker is a good way to come to a consensus without spending too much time on any one topic. It allows, or forces, people to voice their opinions, thoughts and concerns. Pick the Alphas of concern to the group and focus on them. This game can be used in conjunction with “Chase the State” to determine the overall state of any software development effort. Once the current state of an Alpha is known then the next state to be achieved is obvious.
