Part II: Estimating and Planning

Part II: Estimating and Planning

With an understanding of stories under our collective belts, we can turn our attention to estimating and planning projects with user stories. On almost all projects, we need, or are asked, to provide an estimate of how long the project will take. Marketing campaigns need to be readied, users need to be trained, hardware needs to be purchased and so on. Each of these activities depends upon a project's plans.

In Part II, we will see how to estimate the stories and how to create a high-level release plan for delivery of the highest priority stories. Then we'll see how the release plan is refined with additional detail at the start of each iteration with the additional planning necessary to perform the work of that iteration. Finally, we'll look at ways to measure and monitor the progress of the project so that we can constantly adjust the plan to reflect the knowledge we gain from each iteration.
