New Agile Estimation Video

1 Comment

I just released a new video called Estimation – The Fine Art of Guessing


It’s target at people who need to build Agile plans, and are wondering how Agile estimation works.

This is part of a new Agile video series I am starting targeted at people who are brand new to Agile (i.e. your boss, your co-workers, your mom/dad, or anyone you just want to know and understand how you work).

If you have any suggestions on topics, things you would like to see, or how to make these better I would love to here them.

You can reach me here.

Hope you enjoy this latest video. Here are some of the slides from the slidedeck.

There’s an emotional lie to over planning

Leave a comment

I began to see that over planning can be as pernicious as not planning at all. There’s an emotional lie to overplanning; it creates a security blanket that lets you assume you have things under control, that you are further along than you really are, that you’re home free when you haven’t even walked out the door yet.
