We’re agile, so we don’t have to estimate and have no deadlines, right? Wrong! This course will dive into the problem with estimation in projects today and then a complete overview of the concept of agile estimation and the notion of re-estimation. We’ll learn about user stories, story points, planning poker , product backlog, team velocity, how to apply them all to estimation and iterative re-estimation. We will then take an alternative approach and look at using real metrics to limit the guesswork in estimating and still run a team that produces predictably and reliably. The course will round out with a discussion on how to “sell” the concept of Agile Estimation in various environments such as consulting or fixed cost projects.
