Mike Cohn | Agile Estimating (web video + MP4) | June 6, 2012 | Norwegian Developers Conference

This 59-minute video on Agile Estimating is better sequenced for viewing secondly, following the video on User Stories.  Mike Cohn presents:

  • estimating size (before) deriving duration (with a range);
  • story points as relative effort for a user story in a product backlog;
  • ideal time (to complete) as compared to elapsed time (with interruptions);
  • “Planning Poker” as an iterative approach to estimating (collaboratively).

Mike Cohn – Agile Estimating from NDCOslo on Vimeo.

The first step in creating a useful plan is the ability to estimate reliably. In this session we will discuss how to do this. We will look at various approaches to estimating including unit-less points and ideal time. The class will present four specific techniques for deriving reliable estimates, including how to use the popular Planning Poker® technique and other techniques that dramatically improve a project’s chances of on-time completion.
