Stop wasting time and money.

#NoEstimates is an approach to software development that arose from the observation that large amounts of time were spent over the years in estimating and improving those estimates, but we see no value from that investment.

Indeed, according to scholars Conte, Dunmore and Shens a good estimate is one that is within 25% of the actual cost, 75% of the time.

This is the same as saying: give us your money, we promise not lose more than 25% of it (with a 25% probability that we will lose a lot more). We don’t find that acceptable or productive for our industry.

There must be better ways to manage software and product development.

What will you learn in this course?

In this workshop we will review and analyze why we do estimates and how we can improve software and product development while reducing the time and money invested in estimating.


• Decision making frameworks for projects that do not require estimates

• Investment models for software projects that do not require estimates

• Project management (risk management, scope management, progress reporting, etc.) approaches that do not require estimates

• The tools and arguments you need to prove the value of #NoEstimates to your boss

• How to get started applying #NoEstimates right away

• Where is #NoEstimates going and what are the likely changes to software

development that will come next

Any questions?

Do you have other questions you would like to see tackled about #NoEstimates? Send us your questions ahead of the workshop and we will tackle as many of those questions as we can before and during the workshop.

L'IVA te la facciamo risparmiare

Se ti stai iscrivendo al corso a titolo personale, probabilmente non hai modo di scaricare l'IVA.
In questo caso, c'è una tariffa speciale per te, con uno sconto del 20% sul prezzo corrente del biglietto.

Sì lo sappiamo che l’IVA è al 22% ma sappiamo anche che per togliervi l’equivalente dell’IVA avremmo dovuto scontare il 18.03278689% (ossia 22/[100+22]). Quindi in realtà vi stiamo facendo un ulteriore sconticino in più in onore degli dei della cifra tonda, che sappiamo essere un inutile feticcio in un mondo di cifre binarie, ma..
Lo sconto non è cumulabile con altri codici promozionali.
