Estimating in Agile

Don’t get left behind…

Agile, by definition, is iterative and elaborative but that does not mean that you don’t need to plan or provide estimates for the work involved. In fact, it is essential that you develop appropriate estimates for the project phase you are in, deliver the work, reflect on your planned versus actual achievements, and update estimations frequently to ensure you maintain confidence in delivery.

About this course

This course will provide participants with a solid understanding and experience of working with various agile estimating styles and techniques that will improve your chances of delivering projects on-time.

Workshop Objective

This workshop is based on the Estimating in Agile pocketbook, produced by DSDM®. Although focussing on DSDM, the information in the pocketbook, and therefore the content of this course, is applicable to any of the agile approaches. The objectives of the course are to:

  • Give practical support to those working with estimates on agile projects
  • Understand various estimating tools and techniques that support an agile way of working
  • Enable estimators to take account of risk when developing estimates

How this course is delivered


A comprehensive participant handbook is provided. Our participants are also entitled to complementary telephone consultation/advice within 60 days of course completion. All courses may be conducted onsite or at our premises, with experienced trainers providing group and/or individual instruction.
