ICEAA Professional Development & Training Workshop

Last week DCG's Tom Cagley, VP of Consulting, and David Lambert, Software Sizing and Estimation Specialist, attended the International Cost Estimating and Analysis Association's (ICEAA) annual Professional Development and Training Workshop in San Diego.

It was a great event, bringing together professionals from government, industry and academic cost communities to discuss one of our favorite topics here at DCG: Estimation.

The event program featured speakers, training and an exhibition hall, with the goal of furthering attendees' understanding and appreciation of using data-driven estimating and analysis techniques.

Tom and David both presented at the event - and both presentations are available for download:

  • Agile Estimation Using Functional Metrics: Learn how combining the discipline of functional metrics with the collaborative approaches found in Agile parametric estimation has proved to be an effective way to estimate in an Agile environment.
  • Put Some SNAP in Your Estimating Model: Learn how the sizing framework, the Software Non-Functional Assessment Process (SNAP), can be used to size non-functional software requirements, providing a more complete and accurate assessment of the size of a project.

Download the presentations here and contact Tom or David for more information or with any questions. More information about DCG's Estimation Solutions and Consulting Services are available here and here.

We enjoyed the conference (and were happy to see such an interest in estimation), and we hope to attend again in the future!

"It's frustrating that there are so many failed software projects when I know from personal experience that it's possible to do so much better - and we can help."
