Course Description

Software companies want predictability from their development teams in terms of software delivery, quality, and, just as importantly, cost. The Agile process makes development costs more predictable by promoting the breaking of work into small pieces so it can be accurately estimated by the Agile team. Organizations value Agile team members who are educated in efficient Agile estimation methods, as they make the cost of software projects more predictable and therefore less wasteful.

In this course, you'll learn how Agile applies to the whole organization and needs to become part of the culture. Next, you'll learn why team involvement is important in the estimation process and various estimate techniques for determining the scope of work. Finally, you'll learn some of the key questions that should be asked during the estimation process and some of the pitfalls of using Agile estimation techniques.
