Absolute Estimating vs. Relative Estimating

I’ve started work on some new videos and this time it’s all about Agile Estimating, Planning and Contracts. This is the obvious next step having completed Scrum101, and I’m apply some of the lesson that I learned. I’ve recorded about an hours worth of audio and, at this moment, it feels like I’m about a third of the way through. I think I’ll have about 3 hours worth of material before I’m done.

As an exercise to understand how I want this new material to look and feel, I took the very first topic (Absolute Estimating vs. Relative Estimating) and created a presentation to go along with the audio. This is my first draft, with an unprocessed (for noise reduction or effects) audio. I think it’s a big improvement from what I’ve done before.

I’d love to hear you thoughts and opinions, so feel free to leave a comment below.
