You'd like to estimate your project's cost or schedule accurately. So far, none of your approaches have worked. It's time to consider how you can create an accurate estimate. You might not be able to develop an estimate at the beginning of a project that is good until the end. Few project teams can. Instead, learn a number of ways to see your project and how to address your uncertainties in ways your managers will accept.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

What an insight.
Most technical topics are difficult to teach let alone narrate, but Johanna was able to communicate the topic effectively and efficiently. As a project and program manager, one of the most difficult question to answer your client and other stakeholders is "when will this product or service ship?" With so many moving parts in a typical project, let alone program the best you always do is a Scientific/Sophisticated Wild Ass Guess(SWAG). Johanna narrates how we can make this SWAG close to a 5-10% range, and from my experience, that is HUGE.
