Would you like to learn more about Statistical PERT® to estimate your project cost or schedule, or other uncertainties, like your agile team’s product release date?

Join me, William W. Davis, for a free, one-hour, monthly webinar where I demonstrate how to use the built-in, statistical functions inside Microsoft Excel® using a SPERT® spreadsheet.  Each month I’ll cover a different aspect of probabilistic estimation.

After attending, you’ll earn 1 PDU from the Project Management Institute and/or 1 SEU from the Scrum Alliance. A certificate of attendance is freely available upon request.

Registration is required. There is no cost to attend.

If you like this month’s topic but can’t make the date, register anyway. I’ll send you a link to the recorded webinar a few days after the live event.

The October topic is: “Create an Agile Forecast by Bootstrapping Your Burn-up Chart Using Statistical PERT® Bootstrap Edition”. Learn what bootstrapping is and how to create a bootstrapped forecast using a still-in-development Statistical PERT® Bootstrap Edition spreadsheet.

Questions we’ll tackle in the webinar:

  • What is bootstrapping?
  • How does bootstrapping work?
  • What is the #NoEstimates movement?
  • What is right and wrong with #NoEstimates?
  • Why do #NoEstimates agilists prefer bootstrapping over other ways of estimating?
  • How can I create a bootstrapped forecast using the Statistical PERT® Bootstrap Edition spreadsheet?

Attendees to the the live webinar will receive a certificate and reporting instructions so they may report 1 PDU to PMI and/or 1 SEU to Scrum Alliance, in accordance with those respective organization’s continuing education requirements.

Future monthly webinars (tentative):

  • November – Create a right-sized schedule contingency without using Monte Carlo simulation using Soothsayer™ for Project Contingency
  • December – Explore using the lognormal distribution using the all-new Statistical PERT® Lognormal Edition (under development)
  • January – Learn how to model your own uncertainty and why you want to do that using Statistical PERT® Normal Edition (an introductory webinar)
