Do you have a love-hate relationship with estimates? Businesses demand them but agile teams see them as something stakeholders use against them. In a complex agile project, an estimate can feel like a binding commitment and a stranglehold. In this course, you will learn how to create agile estimates that work for both your team and your stakeholders.
Agile estimation is difficult. Most teams struggle with it. When the estimation process is broken, estimates feel impossible to achieve, or overinflated. Stakeholder relationships begin to deteriorate. And management starts to push back on estimates, thinking teams can complete more and more, and are disappointed when unrealistic goals are not met. In defense, teams begin to spend too much time in planning, at the cost of building.
But how do you fix this? In a field where so many teams follow counter-productive practices, copying others won’t work.
This course will help set your team on the right path by showing you how to establish estimation best practices and troubleshoot existing issues
