- High/medium/low confidence on estimates
- Seen by business as 'scientific'
- Minimal business increment (MBI)
- What MUST go out the door to be value to the user
- Why even bother with estimating?
- Dev teams debating point values
- Teams may overestimate if there is a penalty for being 'wrong' in their estimates
- They have to learn, especially if coming from a waterfall environment
- Fixed vs variable outcome deliveries
- Fixed - more time estimating
- Variable - less valuable estimating
- Larger efforts not focusing on risk and project management, but should
- Customer education is important because some think that it's about 'more and faster'
- What it's really about is eliminating waste
- Who gets involved with estimating?
- Whole team, part of team?
- High level - representatives of the team
- Detailed - the whole team
- Retrospecting on stories' estimates
- How did we do on that estimate now that the work is done?
- Anchor stories - bring a 3 pointer and 5 pointer to refinement/planning and point all stories compared in size to the anchor stories
- Kanban - try using a mean or average point value for every story. Do this if you have data to support it.
