Why All Attempts to Improve Estimation Have and Will Continue to Fail! – Thurs. 03/18 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM EST.

About this Event

We’ve been told, over and over again that estimation is a question of skill. That you can get better at estimation, and provide accurate estimates (at some point in the future). Well, let’s take that claim and analyze it. In the process, we will prove that project estimates are a failure-prone approach, that very quickly escalates in a negative impact with the number of tasks in a project. In other words, estimation is the most useful in large projects, but also a certain failure in the same type of projects.

At the end of this session, we uncover a better method, #NoEstimates.
