I am including my agreeing and disagreeing points
for the article. “(Re)Estimation: A brave man’s task January 27, 2014 Uncategorized Panos Stratis ”
Points of Agreement:
*I agree with the fact that a project manager has to take
decisions that abides by companies policy and upper
management.
* I agree with the fact that adding new programmers
later on in the process of software lifecycle increases the
complexity and timing.
* I agree with the fact that the project managers should
be realistic in estimating the timeframe for the work to be
done and meeting deadlines.
*I agree with the fact that the project manager plays a
very crucial role in resource allocation, time frame and
completion of the project.
Points of Disagreement:
*I disagree with the fact that if more programmers
are involved in a task total time increases
exponentially and they don’t always have common
point. My opinion on this statement is that on
involving more programmers on a task the work
gets split and its easy to finish tasks on time. New
ideas can emerge from any programmer in the team
which might help in finishing the tasks quickly.
For eg consider that an application has 100
functions and we have 10 programmers. Each
programmer has to do only 10 functions. Work gets
split and happens quickly.
* If programmers are working towards a common
goal then any argument being raised will only be for
the betterment of the project and not creating
ambiguity. So arguments raised by the
programmers during the project discussion should
be viewed as a positive strategy and not as time
wasting process.
