Software Process and Measurement Cast number 303 features our essay titled “Topics in Estimation.” This essay is a collection of smaller essays that cover wide range of issues effecting estimation. Topics include estimation and customer satisfaction, risk and project estimates, estimation frameworks and size and estimation. Something to help and irritate everyone, we are talking about estimation – what would you expect?
We also have a new installment of Kim Pries’s Software Sensei column. In this installment Kim discusses education as defect prevention. Do we really believe that education improves productivity, quality and time to market?
Software Process and Measurement Cast number 304 will feature our long awaited interview with Jamie Lynn Cooke, author The Power of the Agile Business Analyst. We discussed the definition of an Agile business analyst and what they actually do in Agile projects. Jamie provides a clear and succinct explanation of the role and value of Agile business analysts.
