    The classic arcade game Outrun (1986) was a critical and commercial success for Sega. But in 1994 Sega released Daytona USA which became one of the highest grossing arcade games of all time.

    The reason - roadmaps! Knowing where you are heading makes it easier for you to create a strategy for success.

    This workshop will show you how to level up your roadmaps and break-free of the Gantt chart mentality of many roadmap providers

    This session talks to the hilarious/scary behaviour that surrounds estimates and forecasts.

    I'll look to discuss:

    • why teams need to estimate
    • some of my own funny experiences when discussing estimates with teams
    • the difference between estimates and forecasts
    • probabilistic vs deterministic forecasting methods

    You'll level up by being more aware of the problematic behaviours with estimates, and how probabilistic forecast methods can help.
