Thank You to the three Wisconsin IIBA chapters who hosted the fourth annual WI BADD™ on Tuesday, 10/5/2010, and the firms that sponsored it. I met some new people and learned some new things, and I know that was a lot of work to put on.
Thanks also to the enthusiastic audience for my talk, “Room To Breathe: The Role of the BA in Shaping Early Project Expectations.” If you would like me to speak with your software sponsors or development group about the project target, estimation, and commitment problem, please contact me and we’ll set something up.
Several of you requested additional material on the estimation problem. Here are a few things:
- If Software Estimators Ran the National Hurricane Center (blog post)
- Software Sanity: Accurate Estimates and Other Myths (WTN, the Wisconsin Technology Network)
- A Tale of Two Processes (WTN, the Wisconsin Technology Network)
- If You’re Always Late, A Faster Car Won’t Help (blog post)
Thanks again, everybody at WI BADD™, for a great day. I hope to see you again on Tuesday, 10/11/11.
