Uncertainty

What do most businesses, managers and project personnel most fear?

-----UNCERTAINTY-----

When I ask business people like project managers and accountants why they fear uncertainty the answer is that they fear things going wrong and causing problems. The problems then take time and effort to fix.

They simply equate uncertainty with risk.

This is a false simplification. Yes uncertainty can lead to risks that cost time money and effort to fix.

But uncertainty chas another side too.

In the agile world, we know that certainty is usually a myth!

  • Customer requirements are not always clear, and they change.
  • Estimates to do work are never 100% accurate.
  • Delivery dates vary depending on what work still needs to be done and the productivity of the team.

In fact, if you have an agile mind set...

UNCERTAINTY = OPPORTUNITY

The following video on Youtube explains.

The video also explains how uncertainty and estimation are related.
