When I started my career effort estimates were such a nightmare for me. They were really keeping me up at night and I was thinking what can I do to get it right. In the last decade since I’ve been working as a project manager, I tried a lot of effort estimation techniques. Some have been working for me, some didn’t.

In this lecture I’m sharing with you the knowledge and experience that I learn in over 10 years:

1. Methods of estimations which I use and that gave me the best results in over 100 projects that I managed

2. My methods of crosschecking that the effort estimated in projects are covering the team effort and entire company is sustainable

3. My secret principle that I use every day to estimate and to get better: bases of the estimation principle

4. Analysis of the most common causes of effort deviations and how to apply the bases of the estimation principle in each situation

5. How to can improve your effort estimations

In this class I bring 2 innovative principles:

1. Document your estimations – bases of the estimations principle

2. Keep the baseline you based your estimations on – because if the conditions don’t change there is a high change your estimations will be right
