For Agile, No Estimates: Forecasting with Less Effort and More Accuracy
February 16 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm EST
Welcome to the 20th anniversary of the Agile Manifesto, this event is in support of the Agile20 Reflect Festival with events being held around the world in celebration. Come join us if you would like to be part of a highly interactive agile gamification with a whole lot of fun. Learn while we work together in an agile simulated game.
“When will it be done?” It’s a question we all have to answer. How do we forecast completion dates with less effort and more accuracy? If you’re keen to know how you can spend less time estimating and more time delivering working software—all while providing your customers with some understanding of predictability — this online-game-based workshop will help you understand what and to what degree different factors influence delivery time. Join this session to learn how to move from upfront intuition-based estimates to create a data-based probabilistic forecast that provides a more reliable way to talk about when stuff will be done—and expend less effort to do so. Learn to forecast when things will be done — with less effort and more accuracy!
