Topic: An Introduction to Agile Estimation
It's all Relative! Synopsis: With the advent of agile methods and their affinity for rapid delivery cycles, traditional estimation models are coming up wanting. The practice of expressing the size and complexity of work as a unit of time has been burned into the software community’s psyche. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Agile estimation with relative sizing is faster and more engaging but can be challenging to grasp at first. In this session, we will introduce relative sizing techniques and learn how to apply them to the estimation of team-based services. We then build on those concepts to demonstrate the rationale for maintaining cross-functional teams. And finally, learn how to budget for these activities.
