This post trigged something in me. I like to estimate tasks and projects but in the world of software I think it is near (damn right) impossible to estimate "correctly". An estimate is ofcourse still a Good Thing(tm) as you have no other way of controlling the (alleged) progress, but it is important to remember an estimate is still - an estimate. As a follow-up on my previous post I'd like for managers to remember - we (developers, architects and code smurfs) estimate tasks as we are the best one's to do so based upon our experience (in this area) BUT this doesn't mean management doesn't have a part of the responsibility... Well - I digress
