Estimating and Forecasting in an Agile Environment
- 7 courses
- 17 hours
In this skill path, the learner will develop decision-making skill in assessing uncertain product development efforts, then modeling those uncertainties using different statistical models. After completing this path, the learner will know how to create probabilistic forecasts for agile development efforts so they can align stakeholder expectations and foster sound business decision-making.
Courses in this path
In this beginner section, learners will discover the importance of estimating; distinguish between estimates, predictions and forecasts; and gain basic skill in modeling uncertain agile development efforts using a pre-built, Microsoft Excel-based statistical model.
In this intermediate section, learners will focus on creating forecasts using a variety of statistical approaches for modeling the uncertain nature of agile product development efforts. Learners will also know how to effectively share their forecasts with key.
In the advanced section, learners will apply their skill to solve real-world business problems using a scenario approach to learning. Learners will also explore how structured expert judgment using the classical model can help them assess and improve the quality of expert judgment used to create estimates.
