Agile Estimating and Planning

“Agile teams don”t plan.” At least that’s what some people say. In this session we’ll blow that myth out of the water by looking at how agile teams do plan. Along the way you’ll see why story points have become the most popular unit for estimating work on agile teams. You’ll hear how the popular Planning Poker technique along with story points help eliminate common estimating problems.

You’ll also gain insights into predicting project completion using velocity and confidence intervals, including how to plan a fixed-date agile project. Also covered will be three issues all teams need to address on large, multi-team projects.
