When I Add This Up, It Comes to 20 Years!
Have you ever used your project end date to determine task length? Have you developed a schedule for the team instead of with the team? Is every resource in your plan booked at 100 percent capacity 45 hours a week? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you need to learn some new estimating techniques to take the load off of you -- and off of your team members.
This mini-course with ProjectConnections founder Cinda Voegtli explains several different data sources your team can use to create and sanity check your estimates, how to involve your team, and how your WBS should inform your estimating process. Learn how to use practical and meaningful estimating techniques with your team to get a schedule everyone believes in.
You need this mini-course if
You want to avoid overcommitting resources because they didn't really understand how long various tasks could take.
You want to avoid providing overly optimistic schedules just to meet an executive target date.
You want to get better at taking into account overhead factors that affect how much time people really have available for the project work.
