7 things estimates are and are not for

Estimation and estimates are for …

+ … deciding how much you can commit to in next iteration

+ … comparing estimated features and seeing which one is bigger

+ … deciding if you even want to push for this feature for that work needed

Estimations are not for…

– … evaluating your team speed

– … deciding to how much to bill your customer for the feature (especially when you later get angry that you billed to little)

– … treating them as deadlines

– … deciding that you spent enough on the story and now it’s time to cut corners.
