The initial Agile implementations at the enterprise level, although developed by well known academics and senior executives, were somehow hidden from the public view. Once done only by Computer Science graduates concentrated in the Computer department of large enterprises, software development has become an industry itself, providing services not only to companies but also directly to the end customer. In a business environment, estimation is a mandatory activity in the planning phase. Any traditional framework will involve estimations from the Business Case throughout the closure of the project. Effort and cost estimation become a science, and in non-software industries, there are specialized estimators. Unlike traditional frameworks where estimation is a very well documented and structured process, in Agile, each team has his own approach to estimation. Much of the time, Story Points, a diluted version of other estimation models like Function Points or Object Points, are used.

This webinar looks at the #noestimate approach, a revolutionary approach seen by some Agile teams as a waste reduction, team morale improvement and of course the elimination of one of the most dreadful activities in "waterfall". The webinar is based on the presenter's practical experience as a Project Manager and Development Manager, including real life examples of the benefits and pitfalls of estimation and lack of estimation.
