On Monday Joel and I will be doing Agile Estimation at TechEd in Orlando . It is loosely based on my recent Pluralsight course, however, Pluralsight won’t let me make fun of Joel, while TechEd does. I have attached the slides below, however, we plan on using Excel as our main presentation tool. (If you have not seen this before, it is fun.)

 

AAP309
Making Agile Estimation Work
Breakout Session
Primary Speaker(s): Joel Semeniuk, Stephen Forte
Speaker Assistant(s):
We’re agile, so we don’t have to estimate and have no deadlines, right? Wrong! This session reviews the problem with estimation in projects today and then provides an overview of the concept of agile estimation and the notion of re-estimation. Learn about user stories, story points, team velocity, how to apply them all to estimation and iterative re-estimation. We take a look at the cone of uncertainty and how to use it to your advantage. We then take a look at the tools we will use for Agile Estimation, including planning poker, Team Foundation Server, and much more. We 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. This is a very interactive session, so bring a lot of questions!
