A new ‘best of breed’ short course in estimating
"The main goal of estimating should not be accuracy, the true goal is to improve the quality of decisions today."
We aim to provide participants with a “world class” short course in estimating.
Our focus is keeping things simple, practical, flexible and fun.
The course has been designed to provide participants with a practical based course using the latest best practice theories.
Our aim is to select the best tools and techniques from the main project methodologies in existence (e.g. Waterfall, Agile/Scrum and Six Sigma).
Classes are facilitated by highly experienced project managers who encourage open discussions to enable all participants to see how to apply the theory to their own individual workplace.
Our primary goal is to ensure participants walk away from this short course with a full understanding of all the important principles of estimation, and can confidently apply these to practice using the tools provided during the course.
