Agile Estimating and Planning

You’ve probably heard some people say, “Agile teams don’t plan.” Nothing could be further from the truth. These sessions, including one presented to the teams at Google, blow that myth out of the water!

These presentations, by leading agile speaker and author Mike Cohn, explain how agile teams plan. Learn why story points have become the most popular unit for estimating work on agile teams. Explore how the popular Planning Poker technique, paired with story points, helps eliminate common estimating problems. Gain insights into predicting project completion using velocity and confidence intervals, including how to plan a fixed-date agile project. Leave knowing the three issues all teams need to address on large, multi-team projects.
