Webinar: Functional Metrics and Agile Estimation, Revisited
Register here!

Synopsis - Estimation is a lightning rod for conflicts between agile and process driven methodologies. However, times are changing, and agile is maturing.  Part of the process of maturing is the incorporation of best practices from other methods and frameworks.  In this webinar, Tom Cagley will explain how functional metrics allow you to incorporate additional process discipline into the estimation processes typically used by agile teams.

Next!
SPaMCAST 103 will feature the thirds installment of the Seven Deadly Sins of Measurement Programs essay.  We take on sloth, really this time!
