    Beyond Agile Estimation Part I: Measuring Key Data Points

    During the recent conference season, I did a lot of presentations about Agile Estimation based on my Pluralsight course of the same name. At the end of the sessions I showed an Excel spreadsheet that shows how to take the concept of Agile Estimation one step further by measuring what actually happened and using that as part of your estimation.  I am assuming that you know something about Agile Estimation, however, at BarCamp Hong Kong, I got a request to further explain this spreadsheet in a blog post. As promised, here it is.   Let’s take a look at the spreadsheet after your first iteration (Sprint 1). Let’s assume...
