Epics are large, complex work items that are broken down into smaller, more manageable user stories. Estimating the size of these Epics is a critical part of project management. In this blog post, we explore the key questions related to estimating Epics and present a systematic way to do so using Random Walk Monte Carlo (RWMC) simulation.
Agile software development is a methodology that emphasizes teamwork, flexibility, and continuous improvement. A key component of this approach is the use of a task board to manage work and visualise progress. However, some teams organise their task board incorrectly, which can lead to confusion and inefficiency. In this article, we will explore why this flawed approach is problematic and why moving stories across the board is the correct way to organise work.
The widely accepted method of using story points has been a failure, leading to misleading estimates and frustration all around. But there’s a better way. Discover a simpler and more effective approach that leads to predictable delivery and motivated teams by asking one simple question for each piece of work.
