Planning and Estimation

Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Testing Peers podcast.Join David, Simon, Russell and Chris as we talk about planning and estimation.But, before we dive into the topic we take a brief look into the approaches the Peers take towards researching personal purchases and we discover Simon likes a good review!This week's topic was inspired by Jo Richards and her tweet about story points. https://twitter.com/iamjorichards/status/1583146372873990144?s=20&t=YFF4jtmXM8bRgskwTS6icA In true Peers tradition, when talking about story points, their value and implementation, we mention that it depends on context. Hooray!The discussion leads to estimation, value, audience, inclusion of testing effort and more.Some useful articles referencing topics covered in the episode:Why do we use Story Points for Estimating? by Derek DavidsonPractical Fibonacci: A Beginner's Guide to Relative Sizing by Julee EverettT-shirt sizes aren’t what you think: How to use t-shirt sizing for project estimation by Julie MartinsSolving Software Industry Problems by Applying ‘Systems Thinking’ to Ourselves by Andrew BrownWe hope you found the discussion useful and would love to hear your [email protected] (https://twitter.com/testingpeers)LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/company/testing-peers)Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/testingpeers/)Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/TestingPeers)We’re also now on GoodPods, check it out via the mobile app storesIf you like what we do and are able to, please visit our Patreon to explore how you could support us going forwards: https://www.patreon.com/testingpeersSaffron QA is a provider of recruitment and consultancy services, exclusively for the software testing industry.You can find out more at https://saffronqa.co.uk/  or on LinkedIn at https://www.linkedin.com/company/saffron-qa/Support the show
