This presentation is centered on the Why, How, Benefits, and Power
of Story Points. It will focus on the mantra that: size is estimated, velocity is measured,
and duration is derived.
Relative estimating is an important practice for Agile planning.
This month’s meeting will center around estimating, best
practices and real world experiences that Paul Carter has seen during
his tenure with Commerce Bank.
Similar to the November lunch meeting, this will be an excellent
opportunity for attendees to network, gain some insights and share their
experiences with the rest of the group.
