Estimates for time (either work or elapsed) in software development are ubiquitous. Some people love estimates, some hate estimates.
Woody Zuill asks questions:

How do we know estimates are helping?
Can we prove estimates are helping?
If estimates are helping, with what are the helping?
Might there be something better?
Might not there be?
Might I ask questions in a more round-about way?

You have to answer these questions for your self.

The way things are is because the way things were.

Yesterday’s solution is today’s problem.

This lightning talk is Woody’s invitation to you to join him in questioning the status quo, and even more so, in discovering “What are the right questions?”
