Practical new tools for mastering all resources: short-term (during development), longer-term (lifetime technical debt). Money, Time and human resources.
Traditional cost estimation for IT Projects and Operational IT Systems fail us repeatedly and embarrass us.
My opinion is that this failure of us ‘keeping time and budget commitments’ is unnecessary. There are many well-proven, but too-little-known, methods to avoid the problem.
The ‘new’ estimation methods are simple common sense. Learn to live within your means.
We are going to present several, related and complimentary methods for mastery of the cost problem. These cost control methods are more-responsible and more-realistic than traditional failed methods. These new methods are more robust in the face of uncertainty, change and risks. These new cost-management methods are tightly tied to corresponding delivery of stakeholder value. It is structurally difficult to spend too much, and then not get value for money.
