In this book, Agile Alliance cofounder Mike Cohn discusses the philosophy of agile estimating and planning and shows you exactly how to get the job done, with real-world examples and case studies. Concepts are clearly illustrated and readers are guided, step by step, toward how to answer the following questions: What will we build? How big will it be? When must it be done? How much can I really complete by then? You will first learn what makes a good plan-and then what makes it agile.Using the techniques in Agile Estimating and Planning, you can stay agile from start to finish, saving time, conserving resources, and accomplishing more. Highlights include:- Why conventional prescriptive planning fails and why agile planning works- How to estimate feature size using story points and ideal days-and when to use each- How and when to re-estimate- How to prioritize features using both financial and nonfinancial approaches- How to split large features into smaller, more manageable ones- How to plan iterations and predict your team's initial rate of progress- How to schedule projects that have unusually high uncertainty or schedule-related risk- How to estimate projects that will be worked on by multiple teamsAgile Estimating and Planning supports any agile, semiagile, or iterative process, including Scrum, XP, Feature-Driven Development, Crystal, Adaptive Software Development, DSDM, Unified Process, and many more. It will be an indispensable resource for every development manager, team leader, and team member.
