Dot Voting

  • Jeff Dalton


Dot Voting is a technique that allows an agile team to quickly select or prioritize items with input from all team members. Each team member is given the same number of dot stickers and instructed to place the stickers near the list of items they wish to select or prioritize. Team members may place as many dots as they wish on any item(s) on the list. Items with the most dots are selected or prioritized based on the number of dots they receive. This technique is frequently used during the sprint retrospective to help prioritize improvements.
