Successful Project Estimation: How To Get Your Weekends Back

stephenpashby , David Minton

Do inaccurate estimates frequently lead to you and your team burning the midnight oil or working through your weekends to meet project deadlines? Our team takes both meeting project deadlines and work-life balance seriously and we have developed a system to both accurately estimate projects and manage our team’s capacity to make weekend work the exception rather than the rule.

We will share:

Our process of estimating at different stages of a project
How to use historic data to inform estimates for what you have done before as well as what you haven’t
How to plan for the unknown in a project
How to get a high-level view of your team’s capacity across multiple projects
