2. Requirements Estimation – taking the test before you get the lesson….

A session at UK IIBA South-West (Bristol) Branch Event - July 2011

  • Ian Richards

Wednesday 27th July, 2011

7:15pm to 8:00pm (GMT)

Two of the three critical success factors of a project (on time, within budget) rely heavily on accurate estimating, so why does the IT industry continually frustrate business sponsors by not delivering on our promises?

Choosing the right estimating technique is never easy. There is no hard and fast method that fits all situations and often, estimating lessons are learned the hard way - from your mistakes. This presentation discusses, techniques, pitfalls and gems that can be taken away to make that learning curve a little less steep and traumatic.

Having left a Mathematics and IT lecturing career to ‘gain more industry experience’, Ian has never looked back, working on many stages of the development lifecycle with large blue chip companies, including IBM, British Steel and The AA. Ian has been a Business Analyst for the last 12 years and is now the Lead Fujitsu Business Analyst on a large government contract.
