Im delighted to be speaking at Agile Richmond next Tuesday evening, Sept. 14th, on Range Estimation in Scrum. This will be based on the talk I gave at Agile2010 this year. Thanks to the Agile Richmond organizers for inviting me and I look forward to meeting you there! Here are the details from the Agile Richmond email:
Building a More Accurate Burndown Using Range Estimation In Scrum – With Arin Sime
Join Arin Sime for a discussion on Range Estimation in Scrum. Traditional Scrum burndowns are based on single point estimates of how long a task will take. However, single point estimates are inherently faulty and inaccurate, and they encourage underestimation.
Learn how to incorporate range based estimation techniques into your Scrum burndown and Agile planning, and better communicate to your boss or clients what a project is really going to take.
Arin will back up this thesis with academic and industry research and real world examples of how they use range estimation with their clients. Attendees will leave with concrete tips & templates for using range estimates in their projects.
