Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Chris B Behrens, and welcome to my course, Agile Estimation: Getting Started. Agile estimation is the product of a history of different estimation methods, all being mixed together and refined over many different projects. While agile estimation is primarily used for software estimation, it can be and is used for all kinds of projects. Some of the major topics that we will cover include the fundamental methods of estimating anything, Wideband Delphi, a precursor to agile estimation, using the Fibonacci scale for estimation, and the reasons why estimations fail. By the end of this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of how to perform estimation according to agile principles. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with software development in general. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into advanced courses, like Advanced User Stories and Requirements, Advanced Software Estimation, and other advanced agile practices. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to perform the most difficult kind of estimation, software estimation, in this course, Agile Estimation: Getting Started by Pluralsight
