To Estimate Or #NoEstimate, That Is The Question

Speaker – Gil Zilberfeld

From the early days of agile, there were discussion on how to do estimations “right”. Although there’s no real mentioning them in the agile manifesto, scrum and other methodologies have put effort into this topic because there seems a need for estimations.

What makes an estimation method work? And what will happen one day if we stop estimating?

In this talk, I’m going to discuss where estimation works, what we do with estimations and if that’s the only way to do it. We’ll talk about how our experience and biases control them, and how the #NoEstimates discussion tries to change the way we make decisions.

The next time people ask us for estimations, let’s consider the process first. Then we’ll give them an answer. Maybe.
