In these series of videos, Dr. Kevin Thompson will teach you how to provide good estimates for your projects quickly, using some best practices in expert estimation. These techniques are used widely in the software industry, especially for Agile projects, but they are useful for any kind of project in any industry.

Since the problem of uncertainty is critical for any estimation process, we examine how uncertainty limits our ability to make accurate estimates. We see that uncertainty is related to scope and understand how uncertainties accumulate over time. With this information, we understand better why our techniques for estimation have been designed as they are. See a full list of courses on Agile Development and Agile Methodologies.
