About this Course

Agile Estimating and Planning shows you how to create estimates that give development teams the independence to get the job done while meeting stakeholder expectations. Deadlines don’t have to kill morale, and long-term planning doesn’t have to lock you into an unrealistic commitment. 

This course shows you how to build a safe environment so teams aren't tempted to produce false estimates. You'll see how to build transparency around progress so that the relationship between stakeholders and team members is more productive and respectful. And you'll be able to build a step-by-step estimating process that is objective, and works even when you have a range of skills and experience within the team. 

After this course you'll accelerate planning meetings while improving the quality of discussion around estimates.

What People Are Saying

It can’t get any better than this Estimating is one of the toughest things that we face in Agile Projects. No body explains it better than the man himself. The logical sequence in which the content is presented, gives a better understanding about estimating. The reasons to use Story Points over other units is explained crystal clearly. A correct mix of Mike in person speaking to you and animated concepts helps you to focus on learning rather than just listening. Even after completing the course, I had the visual of Mike explaining the concept for few days afterwards. A highly recommended course for any agilist.

On-Demand Video

How is the course delivered?

Video courses are delivered through streaming videos plus course materials. Once you join you will receive an email with full login and registration instructions. You will be automatically enrolled in the course and able to access the course immediately.

Can I share the videos with my team or my group?

Each license is for one person. You cannot share the videos, audio files, worksheets, or transcripts with others. You can, of course, share what you’ve learned with others.

What if the course isn’t right for me?

If you’re not happy, we’re not happy. We want you to feel confident about enrolling in our on-demand courses, so we offer a full, 30-day money-back guarantee. Just email us within the first 30 days, and we’ll give you a full refund.

How long will I have access?

You have lifetime access. There are no recurring or subscription fees.

What browsers are supported? Can I watch on my phone or tablet?

We support browsers that support HTML 5 such as current versions of Chrome, Safari, Edge, and Firefox. The course also works great on modern iOS and Android devices.

Can we watch as a group?

Yes, in fact we encourage you to do so. However, the course is licensed individually so each person watching needs to own a license. Think of it like a movie theater: If four of you go to a movie together, you each buy a ticket. If you do intend to watch as a group, you may want to take advantage of our group pricing.

Do I get a certificate?

Upon completion of the course you get a certificate of completion and digital badge that can be displayed on social networks, etc...

Does the video course have captions?

Yes, it includes English-language captions.
