My newest post for AITS has been published: Why #NoEstimates Is a Rough Finish for Your IT Career. In it, I show what #NoEstimates sounds like to business people, with an example that’s close to home.
As a former programmer, I understand the mindset. But too many people who should know better are suggesting that #NoEstimates alternatives to planning and scheduling are viable. While it might have worked for one or two unusual cases, it is no more generally applicable than low-gravity golf clubs [obscure Apollo program reference].
As always, thanks for taking the time to read my stuff. After nearly six years of blogging, I’ve grown to really appreciate the people who care enough about the profession to stay current by reading. It’s a comfort to know that I ‘m in good company!
