A simple model for estimating without guessing

  2. 2. In complex environments, what will happen is unknown. Only what has happened may be used for forward-looking decision-making. -- The Scrum Guide

  6. 6. Measure throughput and standard deviation (variance). The variance empirically represents different story sizes. Throughput: 4, 4, 5, 4, 5, 4, 4 Avg throughput = 4.3 Std dev = 0.5 Throughput: 4, 8, 2, 3, 5, 4, 4 Avg throughput = 4.3 Std dev = 1.9
  7. 7. Average throughput + standard deviation = Optimistic throughput forecast Average throughput - standard deviation = Pessimistic throughput forecast
  8. 8. We can now answer the standard estimate questions using empirical data.
  9. 9. When will milestone 1 be done? Most likely mid-late December
  10. 10. What will be done by Jan 1st? Most likely, milestone 1 and some of milestone 2
  11. 11. When will milestone 2 be done? Most likely in first half of January
  12. 12. Will milestone 2 be done by Jan 1st? (aka “Are we on track?”) Highly unlikely (optimistic forecast for current scope falls after date)
  13. 13. Will milestone 2 be done by Jan 4th? Maybe (optimistic says yes, neutral says no)
  14. 14. Will milestone 2 be done by Jan 7th? Maybe (neutral says yes, pessimistic says no)
  15. 15. Will milestone 2 be done by Jan 15th? Highly likely (pessimistic forecast for current scope falls before date)
  16. 16. ❏ Use empirical data ❏ Measure throughput and incorporate variance using standard deviation ❏ Avoid surprises by using ranges and shades of confidence In summary
