In this session from Agile On The Beach 2017, Dave Longan looks at how you can predict the future without planning.
When will we be done? Are we on-track/on-budget? These are a couple of the questions that are asked by stakeholder when working with agile teams. How do you answer these questions without slipping into a world where the entire backlog is defined and estimated at the start? Dave looks at some approaches he has used to successfully provide responses to questions like these without defining everything up front.
