The Cone of Uncertainty

Live Webinar and Q&A with Steve McConnell | May 21st @ 8:00-9:00AM PT

Exclusive for Construx OnDemand users!

Uncertainty feeds into software teams from multiple sources: product envisioning, feature details, design approaches, team productivity, and more. The cumulative effect of all this variability is called “The Cone of Uncertainty.”

The Cone has repercussions for software estimation, and it affects other software dynamics too. In this webinar, you’ll learn how much of a factor the Cone really is and how it affects Agile projects as well as sequential projects. You’ll also learn the historical basis for the Cone and see an updated empirical basis for the Cone.

You’ll learn:

  • How much of a factor the Cone really is
  • How it affects Agile projects
  • How it affects sequential projects
  • The historical basis for the Cone
  • An updated empirical basis for the Cone
