How often in your working life do you or your team break your promises?
Not only does the principle of focusing on WHAT rather than WHEN hold in software development, it also works for personal time management. In both contexts we tend to put unrealistic expectations on ourselves - because we're so scared of breaking promises.
The trick lies in choosing carefully which promises you make, and then learning how to use data to replace over-optimistic guesswork with informed forecasts.
This is a talk about software estimation, delivery management and personal time management. It will outline various key principles for use in planning your time and your commitments.
