Practicing Agile Estimation Workshop Overview

Agile teams also need to estimates, in order to try to peer into the future and forecast what kinds of longer term commitments are feasible, and to help the PO prioritize the Product Backlog well. Estimation process also helps the team itself understand what they will need to do in order to deliver their commitments. It’s not okay to say “we have no idea when this could be ready”.

In this workshop we will:

Practice two main approaches for Agile estimation and discuss how to make it effective and useful
