Come join an interactive and fun examination of an important part of our job with which many of us Project Managers struggle. Estimating is an important part of planning. Yet we often feel a bit helpless, knowing that it all boils down to a guess.

We will look at how our human thought process formulates our estimates and some key techniques to help you transform that next estimate from a guessed data point into an understanding. We will also examine types of estimates and the circumstances under which each may be appropriate (and even helpful) as your project evolves.
