Demistifying Agile Estimation and Planning

Many of us estimate by hours, but is this the most effective mechanism to forecast future delivery?
In this talk at DevFest 2018, to the Google Developer Group Sydney, Matthew Hodgson looks at a number of techniques in agile estimation and planning. He’ll throw away the rhetoric and dogma, and look at why the most effective ways of estimating come from agile. In this talk you’ll learn about why techniques from the 1940’s “wide band delphi” are still the most effective ways of estimating delivery to customers so you can improve your ability for you and your team can get stuff to people faster.
