Getting Past the Initial Estimation to Better Hit the Target

To help with a team’s continuous improvement there is a task that needs to be effectively used: Estimating. Most estimating activities tend to be from scratch with a high variance that will get smaller as more information is provided. The problem is the estimate may get written in stone and may not be revisited. Join Jeremy Berriault’s as he shares effective tips and tools to estimate work whether it is pointing tickets in an Agile methodology or going through other methodologies like RUP or Waterfall. While estimating work is not a simple task, Jeremy will help you understand the principles of estimation, so you can stop creating them from scratch. He will also discuss how to use Assumptions, Dependencies and Constraints when communicating the estimate and explain the relationship between reuse and analysis of the estimates versus the actual work done. To that end, Jeremey will discuss how the last component of the estimation process that often gets overlooked is understanding how accurate that estimate was and understanding what variables occurred that impacted it, positively or negatively.
