I have a new article up on agileconnection.com called The Case for #NoEstimates.
The idea is to produce value instead of spending time estimating. We have a vigorous “debate” going on in the comments. I have client work today, so I will be slow to answer comments. I will answer as soon as I have time to compose thoughtful replies!
This column is the follow-on to How Do Your Estimates Provide Value?
If you would like to learn to estimate better or recover from “incorrect” estimates (an oxymoron if I ever heard one), see Predicting the Unpredictable. (All estimates are guesses. If they are ever correct, it’s because we got lucky.)Tags: estimate, estimation, management, noestimate, risk
