    In this highly engaging workshop attendees will experience estimating, planning and delivering a new product and product features.  The uncertainty in value and costs will be resolved through rolling dice based on the stories that the team selects and prioritizes.   The teams will run through 3 iterations of story cost, value estimation, and product feature delivery.  Points will be scored for delivering product features and meeting release and iteration commitments. 

    Dealing with uncertainty is one of the largest challenges that teams face.  The simulation aims to have levels of uncertainty in value and delivery that are commensurate with those found in software development.  Some of the key tools for dealing with uncertainty are integrated into the simulation.  In particular, the simulation covers these 4 areas:

    • Value of Information
    • Value of Flexibility
    • Cost of Delay
    • Value of Uncertainty

    Attendees will come away with a better understanding of the challenges of working with uncertainty in software projects, and will learn some of the tools that are at their disposal for managing this uncertainty.

    Estimating software projects has proven to be particularly challenging.  Over-running schedules happens frequently in our industry.  As a result software estimation is often viewed as a black art.  In this session Todd will look into some of the reasons for these challenges by exploring a number of myths of software estimation and then setting out to validate or bust these myths.

    Some of the myths that will be explored include:

    • Historical Estimation Accuracy
    • Relative Estimation
    • The Cone of Uncertainty
    • Velocity
    • Scope Creep
    • Estimation Tools
    • Wisdom of Crowds
