Estimations management and meeting deadlines


The mysteries of the “buffer”

Good news, it took less than we expected, we are ahead of schedule.

Two days ahead of schedule, and there is no 2-days task to add there.

We’ve got some unplanned musts. Help!

Bad news, it seems like we are not going to meet the deadline.
