“Estimation, Software Project Estimation” is for anyone who wants to have a fresh and adequate outlook on the process of software estimation and forecasting, and how these activities facilitate the conversations and relationships among people. It is directly relevant to the roles of scrum masters and project managers, and provides practical tools for intelligent project control. The book is also valuable for business people who want insight into the type of problems that delivery teams face, and for programmers and other delivery team members who want to gain an understanding of the project manager’s day-to-day challenges. While life experience as a member of a software project is useful for quickly recognizing some of the situational nuances, this book will appeal to curious people who are early in their careers.
