Stop asking WHEN?

6.511 Aufrufe

Veröffentlicht am

Often wrong estimations are blamed as causes of project failures.

In this talk I'm explaining why we as human beings inevitably suck at estimating our work in time. Irrational behaviour, cognitive biases, and laws of project nature work against a team trying to make estimates.

Stop asking "when" - this is a wrong question.
