The 20M€ Tender Challenge, a Real Case Study of Estimation of a Very Big Agile Initiative
by Manuel Buitrago
We received an offer from a client that seemed impossible. They needed us to estimate the effort and the market-adjusted cost of a +20M€ agile development. This had to include a precise estimate of tests to be carried out and needed to be delivered within 10 days! Doesn’t it sound impossible to achieve?
This talk will be about what we did and how we successfully managed this challenge in just 10 days.
