About This Class

Whether you're working on a project with a team or taking on a solo gig, you'll want a good idea of what it'll take to complete that thing. The best way to get a sense for the level of effort of a project or task is to create an estimate. Here's the thing: it's not that difficult to do!

You've got to remember that estimates are never perfect—but some tactics can certainly improve your aim. Find out what goes into a good project estimate and how to eliminate the guesswork.

In this class, you’ll learn how to: 

  • Make the case for sound estimates
  • Determine whether a project is worth taking on
  • Evaluate your project or task from all angles
  • Engage your team and stakeholders in an estimating process that works
  • Break your project down into its smallest parts for easier—and more accurate—estimation
  • Explore methods of estimation for typical project types, and even personal projects
