Asstimations!

13 Aug

Don’t you just love it when managers pull estimates out of the air and expect software development teams to meet those estimates?

Then they get upset that the team is moving too slow.  Too slow to meet the estimates that they pulled out of their ass – ASSTIMATES.

Asstimates are hazardous.  Asstimates, cause us vs. them.  Asstimates create fear.  

Please.  Please.  PLEASE!!!!  Stop creating ASSTIMATES and expecting your teams to meet them.

(These remarks are completely fictional.  Any resemblance to any of my friends/colleagues/clients is completely coincidental.)
