Why do we put ourselves through the trouble of estimating the amount of time and money needed to complete software projects? When can we skip the whole process?
Estimation is one of the most personally hazardous activities software developers engage in. As professionals, we have an obligation to commit only to things we know we can achieve.
Speaker Ryan Findley, Owner and Founder of Neomind Labs, will provide the tools necessary to clearly distinguish between an estimate and a commitment, and to educate your customers about the appropriate uses of each.
He will also address the use of cost accounting in software project management, and what it means to have high throughput.
