#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.
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.

How To Predict Project Completion Schedules With 90% Accuracy
Project completion schedules are the bane of the technology industry. But they don't have to be. Armed with #NoEstimates principles, you will be able to effectively predict the completion schedule of any projects, knowing ahead of time when your project will be ready for deployment. PS: the 90% is just because I know you wouldn't believe 100%, but it is possible! I've done it, repeatedly.
How To Deliver MORE Value To Your Company Or Clients In Less Time
#NoEstimates isn't just about estimating project timelines and setting deadlines more intelligently. It's also about streamlining and improving the entire project management process, so you get more done in less time. Dramatically improve productivity with the best project management processes I've come across in more than 10 years.
The Key to Maximizing Value While Minimizing Unrealistic Expectations
How to simultaneously deliver the maximum value while ensuring that everybody on the team knows what the true goal is. Develop a laser-like focus on attaining realistic goals and cut out time wasted on unrealistic goals in the process.
And Much, Much More
I've gone the mile to pack the maximum possible information into the #NoEstimates workshop. Each module of the workshop contains nuggets of project management wisdom that you won't find anywhere else.
