One of our resident Agile Xperts, Paul Boos, shares his thoughts in the post, “Views of Estimating and Not Estimating for an Executive” on his Nimblicious blog. Here, he takes a couple of stances on how executives may approach estimates based on the organizational context. Paul goes on to emphasize that a variety of estimation techniques, including not estimating at times, may be appropriate.
If you have been wondering how the #noestimates movement plays in at the executive level, we think you will find his post helpful.
