Agile Estimating and Planning - Mike Cohn


Key take-aways from this book..

How to use something that sounds as childish as 'story points' and make it work better than the traditional GANTT chart sequential task based model ? Separate size from duration.
How to prioritize stories or themes ?
How do you know and explain Story#1 is 'more value to the customer'?
How to separate stories into must-haves / linear / exciters ?
How to plan releases and iterations ? How to track em ?
How to make an estimate of initial velocity and how to get better at it with iterations under your belt?

In short this was my missing piece of the agile jigsaw. Gonna read it again soon when I plan something new.

Recommended Read. Recommended Buy.
