Estimates and NoEstimates By Woody Zuill - AgileCincy February Meeting

The default use of an "estimate-driven" approach is pervasive in software development efforts, and while estimates can be useful, it is worthwhile to scrutinize our use of estimates for cost, time, and effort.

We say we depend on estimates to make important decisions, and yet we’re often disappointed by the results.

We'll explore the purpose and use of estimates in the management of software development, and question some of our typical practices. For example, do we really need estimates for all the things we are currently using them? Are we getting a reasonable benefit from estimates? Is there a way to prove that estimates are helping us make good decisions? Is it possible to manage software development projects without these estimates, or at least with fewer estimates?
