Notes about our guesstimating method
- We redo the guesswork every week.
- The board is located next to our coffee machine.
- We plan to involve all employees.
- We have no correlation metrics so far but surely plan to create them.
- Acceptance and praise has been high from all sides so far.
- The board is maintained by our services team. (Thank you!)
- The idea popped up after numerous complex approaches that all failed to survive a multitude of weeks.
- We do trust all employees to give equally good judgements on the future.
- We do trust all employees not to trick the board or to change anything. (What for?)
