Discussed in this episode
I don’t know about you but I HATE kale… That stupid leafy green vegetable with the ANDI score of 1000. It’s really hard to chew, and any time I see it on a menu, I skip it! But I get there are a lot of kale converts who go around saying, “Eat your veggies, especially kale!”
OK, I know what you’re thinking, “What does this have to do with building software products and product estimates?”
Just like we have to buckle down and eat our veggies (including kale) to stay healthy, there are a number of things we need to do in order to have accurate estimates that will ensure shipping a product consistently.
In the last episode of Build (https://youtu.be/Nw2808kLl3Q), we mentioned how a number of the current approach fall short. If you were left wondering what to do next, don’t fret, because in, today’s episode, Hiten Shah is back. He’ll be introducing a new approach to coming up with product estimates, and it’s coincidentally called the EAT method.
As you watch the episode you’ll learn:
- How to perform each step of the EAT method — Explore, Adjust, and Task
- What you CANNOT do with this approach
- How this approach reduces ambiguity, which is the #1 cause of delays and scope creep
