Sammanfattning: For a long time there has been issues about time estimation in IT-projects. Despite the fact that we went from the traditional waterfall model to the agile methods, the challenges of time estimation has continued. The agile methods do not solve the problems. A technique that agile teams have chosen to apply in order to solve this problem is planning poker. The technique is based on a method that includes a number of steps for implementation. This study is conducted to investigate whether methods such as planning poker for time estimation provide agile team support to make safer time estimates in agile IT-projects. The study also investigates how the process of planning poker is applied in practice. The study is based on interviews and a literature study that has compiled in a result that has been analysed. The result shows that agile teams choose to modify the prescribed method of planning poker to streamline the process as they find that some steps in the prescribed method are unnecessary. This result differences from earlier research where praxis is that you follow all steps of the prescribed method. Further a number of challenges that comes at an adaptation of the technique are identified. The result also shows that planning poker creates better discussion and understanding of matters for the agile team.
