If you’ve ever struggled to create a project schedule or budget or had difficulty forecasting when new product features will be ready, this course is for you!

Taught by experienced Scrum master and project manager William Davis, this short, online course will take the pain out of creating project and product estimates. 

In less than 3 hours, you’ll learn:

  • The difference between estimates, predictions, and forecasts — and why forecasts are superior to predictions
  • How to easily create estimates for any uncertainty that has common, bell-shaped risk characteristics (e.g., project cost or time to develop new features)
  • How to modify Statistical PERT, a freely licensed estimation technique, to create even better forecasts in the future

Hurry! This offer expires August 1, 2019.
