Eliminating Noise: Make better decisions when estimating, prioritizing & hiring

Link visible for attendees

Talk Details: (Virtual Event)

Contrary to what you might think, this talk is not about the effect of noisy offices on productivity. Or about open plan vs individual offices. Or the social isolation of remote work.

Instead, this talk is about improving the key decisions that we make at work every day. When deciding what features to prioritize, how long they will take to build or who to bring on to our teams, we are all vulnerable to common errors in judgment. By gaining an awareness of the effect of statistical noise and bias, we can work to reduce its impact.

This talk builds on the recent book by Daniel Kahneman, Olivier Sibony and Cass Sunstein – Noise: A Flaw in Human Judgment – relating its ideas to agile practices and our work on software teams.
