Estimations themselves are not bad, and in some situations they can be very helpful. However, estimations are part of an unquestioned process of managing software development. There is a new trend now (#NoEstimates) which regards estimates as waste, since they do not bring us closer to workable software.

Is that really the case, and if not, what decisions are we taking based on these estimates? How good do we need to become at estimations in order to serve their purpose? When is it good enough?

In this workshop we will try to find answers to all these questions, and generate a good discussion to challenge the status-quo when it comes to estimations in Agile projects. All while taking a practical approach for estimating complexity through hands-on exercises.

Workshop Agenda

  1. The problem with estimates
  2. Rethinking estimates - when and how to use them
  3. Reaching consensus when estimating relative complexity
  4. How #NoEstimates can help manage a late project
  5. Gain customer trust with forecasting
