“Agile projects can’t be estimated accurately,” some agile practitioners say. “Estimation is not Agile.” Are they right? To take advantage of Agile development, do you have to give up the estimation that your business needs? In this talk, the award-winning author of Software Estimation: Demystifying the Black Art, cuts the Gordian knot of Agile Estimation. Differentiating between agile practice and agile culture, Steve McConnell describes common impediments to estimation on Agile projects, and he highlights key practices that lead to a Bold New World of Agile Software Estimation–providing far better results than were ever seen on waterfall projects.
