DUARTE, Vasco #NoEstimates: How To Measure Project Progress Without Estimating . Oikosofy Series, 2016.
How to always be on time, and not risk missing important deadlines or go over budget
This book is the result of many years of hard work, and plenty of lessons learned. I wrote it because I believe we can do better than the accepted “status quo” in the software industry.
It took me years to learn what I needed to learn to come up with my version of the #NoEstimates approach. You can do it in weeks!
The techniques and ideas described here will help you explore the #NoEstimates universe in a very practical and hands-on manner. You will walk through Carmen’s story. Carmen is a senior, very experienced project manager who is now confronted with a very difficult project. One would say, an impossible project.
Through the book, and with the help of Herman, Carmen discovers and slowly adopts #NoEstimates which helps her turn that project around. Just like I expect it will help with the project you are in right now. The book also includes many concrete approaches you can use to adopt #NoEstimates, or just adopt those practices on their own.
