Why is it so hard to estimate software development projects? Are the wrong approaches and tools being applied to this challenge? Practices and approaches to software development have steadily improved over the years, but techniques for providing accurate estimates of effort, budgets, timelines and resources have not. Studies have shown that inaccurate software project estimation is a contributing factor in the majority of failed or challenged projects – getting the estimates right is critical.

Course Highlights

  • Understand why software estimation is difficult & how to overcome the difficulties
  • Produce accurate user story, sprint (iteration) and software project estimates
  • Accurately adjust a project schedule to fit desired timelines, budgets or resources
  • Leverage the Improving Estimation Methodology and associated web & mobile tools

Learning Objectives & Approach

The Improving Estimation Methodology (IEM) and Improving Estimator web and mobile apps address this industry shortcoming. Through this course attendees will gain an understanding of IEM and experience hands-on practical usage of the IEM toolset. Learning IEM and its tools will prepare you to start estimating projects confidently and reliably, thus improving the way your projects are delivered, ultimately helping you and your clients to be more successful.

Following the course, all course participants will enjoy free use of the Improving Estimator toolset to facilitate better estimates and more successful projects.
