Software Projects Estimation Workshop in Live Virtual Classroom
A specially designed course to join from anywhere in an interactive live virtual classroom and learn the art of estimating software size, efforts, time and cost.
About the program
- High degree of uncertainty and availability of limited information in the beginning, make the estimation of projects in any field challenging, exciting and equally risky. It is even more challenging in software field. If estimations are not properly done, the complete project becomes struggle for project manager and its team.
- Therefore it is not only important to pick up the right methodology for estimation but also use it accurately so that appropriate commitment can be made and a quality software can be delivered on time and within budget.
- This workshop focusses on four (WBS, Function Point Analysis, Use Case Points, Story Points) estimation methodologies.You will learn the estimation using these methodologies and their merits & demerits. Post this training participants will be able to choose right methodology for their projects and use it accurately to estimate.
Certified PMPs can earn 14 PDUs
