How to Estimate Anything Accurately

How to Estimate Anything Accurately

Okay, so hopefully we’ve established http://fastprojects.org/2017/08/23/we-dont-have-time-to-plan-it-just-go-do-it/ that planning is a good idea and that the alternative – ‘we don’t have time to plan it – just go do it’ is, to put it mildly, rather dumb.

But how can we estimate accurately when estimation is – basically – predicting the future and something that no mortal person can do? There are three things that can help us. These are:

o Detail in the plan
o Learning from previous projects
o Using Assumptions.

We have a paper called How To Estimate Anything Accurately. If you’d like a copy just email us at info@fastprojects.org and we’ll send it to you.

  1. Thank you for sharing your experience, It would be great to meet you in person one day when you come back to Italy. I look forward to read your upcoming “The Only Project Dashboard You’ll Ever Need” article.

    1. Hello JF Burguet,

      Thank you for your comments. Not sure when I’ll next be in Italy but always good to meet people who share the project management pain. Where in Italy are you?

      Have a great week

      Fergus
