      seems you want to plan upfornt - is always this issue that leads to
      your problem

      - you do not need to worry about this - I mean, do you best in
      planning as you can, if you know exactly what is going to be done,
      write it done - if not, not. If you have a 4days task, ok. The one who
      will start working on this task will be able to adjust and maybe will
      create 2 single tasks or will add 4 additional ones. It is up to him.

      A four our planning meeting with 24 developers - to much - from my
      point of view. I would work with a Scrum of Scrum. Let select the
      backlog items by your Scrum Masters and they will then work out the
      tasks within their teams. If you have dependencies - work them out
      during the sprint.
