Planning with #NoEstimates (Part II)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The #NoEstimates movement has gained a lot of followers (and opposition) in recent years. There’s a lot of discussion about it, but how do we actually make plans without estimates?

 This is exactly what we’re going to do in this workshop. We’re going to introduce and play with methods that either replace or compliment regular estimation methods. We’ll discuss Cost of Delay, complexity evaluation, historic data and variation, and even see how Lean Startup methods change how we plan.

In the process we’ll discuss why we want estimates for in the first place. We’ll discuss decision theory, where estimates fail us, and try to build a case for planning based on scientific methods, rather than gut feelings.
