I just read recently that this sort of estimating technique can be detrimental as the project manager''s opinion is skewed based upon previous experiences and that he/she may not consider all of the data available when basing estimates on previous experience. Of course that''s hogwash and we are most certainly going to base estimates on previous experience..... Nice to know that it has a fancy name. :)

I think that a lot of techniques in project management have fancy names!

i like the short definition

It's Short, Crisp and to the point..Beautiful presentation.

Thanks Elizabeth..
