Probability: The Great Emulsifier for Agile and Earned Value Metrics (EVM)

In this @agileuprising panel episode, Prateek Singh @singhpr, Andy Cleff @justsitthere, Ben Rodilitz BenRodilitz, and Colleen Johnson @scrumhive chat about applying #agile thinking to earned value management. #EVM, a project management technique used in measuring performance, progress, and risk, relies on calculations based on detailed and accurate upfront planning.

Could abandoning deterministic #estimates combined with #probabilistic #forecasting – think Monte Carlo Simulations – be the key to success?
