Agile Estimation: "When will you be done?" Talking to Leaders and Managers About Agile Construction

Answering “when will you be done?” to people outside the team – like the C-suite, directors, and managers – is often challenging for teams focused on building software.  Speaking to this group is a core competency for any agilist who wants to retain freedom and funding! This session takes a brief walk through the concept of velocity, explains the “cone of uncertainty,” burn up and burn down charts, and then shows you how to provide a ready and truthful answer about when you will be done.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand common agile planning concepts such as team capacity, velocity, burn up and burn down charts, uncertainty, and range estimation
  • Understand the cone of uncertainty as applied to burn up charts
  • Understand at a high level fixed-date and fixed-feature release planning
  • Understand how to translate agile planning concepts into business-accessible answers


  • Networking
  • Introductions and Announcements
  • Presentation
  • Mini Breakout Session
  • Closing Remarks

Education Hours: 1 CDU for Recertification / 1 PD for ECBA Certification
