Praise for Agile Estimating and Planning "Traditional, deterministic approaches to planning and estimating simply don't cut it on the slippery slopes of today's dynamic, change-driven projects. Mike Cohn's breakthrough book gives us not only the philosophy, but also the guidelines and a proven set of tools that we need to succeed in planning, estimating, and scheduling projects with a high uncertainty factor. At the same time, the author never loses sight of the need to deliver business value to the customer each step of the way." --Doug DeCarlo, author of eXtreme Project Management: Using Leadership, Principles and Tools to Deliver Value in the Face of Volatility (Jossey-Bass, 2004) "We know how to build predictive plans and manage them. But building plans that only estimate the future and then embrace change, challenge most of our training and skills. In Agile Estimating and Planning, Mike Cohn once again fills a hole in the Agile practices, this time by showing us a workable approach to Agile estimating and planning. Mike delves into the nooks and crannies of the subject and anticipates many of the questions and nuances of this topic.Students of Agile processes will recognize that this book is truly about agility, bridging many of the practices between Scrum and ExtremeProgramming." --Ken Schwaber, Scrum evangelist, Agile Alliance cofounder, and signatory to the Agile Manifesto "In Agile Estimating and Planning, Mike Cohn has, for the first time, brought together most everything that the Agile community has learned about the subject. The book is clear, well organized, and a pleasant and valuable read. It goes into all the necessary detail, and at the same time keeps the reader's burden low. We can dig in as deeply as we need to, without too much detail before we need it. The book really brings together everything we have learned about Agile estimation and planning over the past decade. It will serve its readers well." --Ron Jeffries, www.XProgramming.com, author of Extreme Programming Installed (Addison-Wesley, 2001) and Extreme Programming Adventures in C# (Microsoft Press, 2004) "Agile Estimating and Planning provides a view of planning that's balanced between theory and practice, and it is supported by enough concrete experiences to lend it credibility.I particularly like the quote 'planning is a quest for value.'It points to a new, more positive attitude toward planning that goes beyond the 'necessary evil' view that I sometimes hold." --Kent Beck, author of Extreme Programming Explained, Second Edition (Addison-Wesley, 2005) "Up-front planning is still the most critical part of software development. Agile software development requires Agile planning techniques. This book shows you how to employ Agile planning in a succinct, practical, and easy-to-follow manner." --Adam Rogers, Ultimate Software "Mike does a great follow-up to User Stories Applied by continuing to provide Agile teams with the practical approaches and techniques to increase agility. In this book, Mike provides time-proven and well-tested methods for being successful with the multiple levels of planning and estimating required by Agile. This book is the first to detail the disciplines of Agile estimating and planning, in ways that rival my 1980 civil engineering texts on CPM Planning and Estimating."--Ryan Martens, President and Founder, Rally Software Development Corporation "With insight and clarity, Mike Cohn shows how to effectively produce software of high business value.With Agile estimation and planning, you focus effort where it really counts, and continue to do so as circumstances change." --Rick Mugridge, Rimu Research Ltd., and lead author, Fit for Developing Software (Prentice Hall, 2005) "Finally! The groundbreaking book my clients have been clamoring for! Agile Estimating and Planning demystifies the process of defining, driving, and delivering great software that matters to the business. Mike's clarity, insight, and experience leap out through every page of this book, offering an approach that is relevant and immediately useful to all members of an Agile project." --Kert D. Peterson, President, Enterprise Agile Group, LLC "This isn't yet another generic book on Agile software development. Agile Estimating and Planning fills a gap left by most of the other books and gives you important, practical, down-to-earth techniques needed to be successful on Agile development projects."--Steve Tockey, Principal Consultant, Construx Software "Estimation, planning, and tracking is a trinity. If you don't do one of them, you don't need the other two.This book provides very practical knowledge for estimation, planning, prioritizing, and tracking. It should be compulsory subject matter for project managers and their teams, even if they hesitate to call themselves Agile." --Niels Malotaux, Project Coach "Effective planning is an important, but often misunderstood, part of any successful Agile project. With Agile Estimating and Planning, Mike Cohn has given us a definitive guide to a wide range of Agile estimating and planning practices. With his clear and practical style, Mike not only explains how to successfully get started planning an Agile project, but also provides a wealth of tips and advice for improving any team's Agile planning process. This book is a must-read for managers, coaches, and members of Agile teams." --Paul Hodgetts, Agile coach and CEO, Agile Logic "Mike's writing style captures the essence of agility-just the right amount of information to bring clarity to the reader.This book provides an excellent guide for all Agile practitioners, both seasoned and novice." --Robert Holler, President and CEO, VersionOne, LLC "It is as if Mike took the distilled knowledge regarding planning and estimation of a great Agile developer (which he is) and laid out all he knows in an easily understandable manner.More importantly, he has a great mix of concepts with real-world examples finished off with a case study so the reader can relate the information to their own situation. Unless you are already an expert Agile planner and estimator, this book is for you." --Alan Shalloway, CEO, Senior Consultant, Net Objectives, and coauthor of Design Patterns Explained, Second Edition (Addison-Wesley, 2005) "Although I had plenty of XP experience before trying out Mike Cohn's Agile planning practices, the effectiveness of the practical and proven techniques in this book blew me away! The book recognizes that people, not tools or processes, produce great software, and that teams benefit most by learning about their project and their product as they go. The examples in the book are concrete, easily grasped, and simply reek of common sense.This book will help teams (whether Agile or not) deliver more value, more often, and have fun doing it! Whether you're a manager or a programmer, a tester or a CEO, part of an Agile team, or just looking for a way to stamp out chaos and death marches, this book will guide you." --Lisa Crispin, coauthor of Testing Extreme Programming (Addison-Wesley, 2003) "Mike Cohn does an excellent job demonstrating how an Agile approach can address issues of risk and uncertainty in order to provide more meaningful estimates and plans for software projects." --Todd Little, Senior Development Manager, Landmark Graphics "Mike Cohn explains his approach to Agile planning, and shows how 'critical chain' thinking can be used to effectively buffer both schedule and features. As with User Stories Applied, this book is easy to read and grounded in real-world experience." --Bill Wake, author of Refactoring Workbook (Addison-Wesley, 2003) "Mike brings this book to life with real-world examples that help reveal how and why an Agile approach works for planning software development projects.This book has great breadth, ranging from the fundamentals of release planning to advanced topics such as financial aspects of prioritization. I can see this book becoming an invaluable aid to Agile project managers, as it provides a wealth of practical tips such as how to set iteration length and boot-strap velocity, and communicate progress." --Rachel Davies, Independent Consultant "There has been a need for a solid, pragmatic book on the long-term vision of an Agile Project for project managers. Agile Estimating and Planning addresses this need.It's not theory--this book contains project-tested practices that have been used on Agile projects. As Mike's test subjects, we applied these practices to the development of video games (one of the most unpredictable project environments you can imagine) with success."--Clinton Keith, Chief Technical Officer, High Moon Studios "When I first heard Mike Cohn speak, I was impressed by a rare combination of qualities: deep experience and understanding in modern iterative and Agile methods; a drive to find and validate easy, high-impact solutions beyond the status quo of traditional (usually ineffective) methods; and the passion and clarity of a natural coach. These qualities are evident in this wonderful, practical guide. I estimate you won't be disappointed in studying and applying his advice." --Craig Larman, Chief Scientist, Valtech, and author of Applying UML and Patterns, Third Edition (Prentice Hall, 2005) and Agile and Iterative Development (Addison-Wesley, 2004) "Agile Estimating and Planning is a c

Ich habe das Buch in den vergangenen Jahren oft benutzt. Es ist von 2005, also schon etwas älter, aber dennoch aktuell. Und das Alter des Buchs hat auch einen Vorteil: damals musste der Autor Mike Cohn (einer der "Erfinder" von Scrum) die Menschen noch wirklich überzeugen, wieso man agil besser plant. Daher kann man das Buch als Argumentationshilfe bei Personen benutzen, die noch aus der "alten Welt" der Wasserfallentwicklung stammen, z. B. aus manchen Banken, Versicherungen oder Behörden.
Nachdem der Autor die Probleme bei der Planung erläutert hat, erklärt er die "agile Planung" anhand von "Story-Points", "Velocity" und "Planning Poker". Es ist ein genialer Schachzug des Autors, die bei Entwicklern sehr unbeliebte Aufwandsschätzung in ein Poker-Spiel zu verwandeln. In weiteren Kapiteln wird der Umgang mit Risiken, die finanzielle Planung und die Auswahl der zu berücksichtigen Feature besprochen. Schließlich geht es beim "Release Planning" darum, die Zeitpunkte der Fertigstellung der einzelnen Features anhand des vorliegenden agilen Plans zu schätzen. Der agile Plan wird dann schrittweise in "Iterationen" abgearbeitet. Der Autor bietet hier eine Fülle seiner Erfahrungen an und gibt wertvolle Hinweise zur Planung und Ausführung der Iterationen. Auch auf den Umgang mit Unsicherheiten im Plan mit sog. "Bufferzonen" geht der Autor detailliert ein. Schließlich wird auch die Ausführung des Plans, das "Monitoring" mit "Burndown Charts" und das "Re-Planning" besprochen.
Dieses Buch ist immer noch ein wegweisendes und wichtiges Buch.
After introducing the common drawbacks of classic approaches to estimation and planning, Cohn introduces a different approach. Based on his intense knowledge by working with Agile teams, he introduces the concepts of story-points or ideal days, how and when to re-estimate your schedule and how to get a release date out of this. From the customer and product owner point of view he introduces the basics behind priorization.
While all this should be enough to read, the concluding Case Study wraps up the book overall and goes through an iteration within a project. This helps the reader think over the course of the book even in a practical way.
Personally I have read through this and found the teaching overwhelming to try them out. Since I was not working in an Agile environment by that time, I can truely say that the techniques work and pretty much enable you to show your progress. Burn-down charts and story point estimation applied in the right way can bring you back under project control.
The book got 4 stars out of 5 because the tracking of the agile process is captured in short on 30 pages, which, in my opinion, is not enough, because the changes and difficulties, that occure while the projects is running, are not fully anticipatable. How to cope with such problems was not part, maybe not the intention of the book. Additionally i expected the chapter "Planning the Multiple-Team Project" to be little broader, because i do interact with other teams and those do not neccessarily use the agile toolbox. The book does not cover the incoporation of teams with an other project approach, sadly.
A case study does a good round up for the ideas proposed and gives a practical overview of the things written. The book did and does a good job in project preparation.
Die Detailtiefe geht über die üblicher Standardwerke zu agilen Vorgehensmodellen hinaus. So zeigt der Author verschiedene Ansätze zur Backlogpriorisierung sowie dem Schneiden von User Stories und auch das häufig vermisste Puffermanagement findet mit einem eigenen Kapitel Beachtung.
Insgesamt ein sehr empfehlenswertes Buch, das nicht zuletzt durch den lockeren Schreibstil und die amüsanten Zitate am Kapitelbeginn beim Lesen viel Freude bereitet.
