In between Estimating and NoEstimates.

Clarke Ching likes Lesstimating.

  • uses it in the context of Critical Chain planning
  • For me, the biggest benefit of sizing & estimating is learning enough to decide to NOT do something. Cheaper than a Spike Solution.

The biggest reason I use estimates is to help catch differing unstated beliefs about how complicated something is, it triggers a conversation.

The second reason is to drop a story, or scope-reduce.
