I was talking with Christian about an engineer who believes in diving rods.
It turns out that a lot of engineers in his business have a diving rod in their trucks, and use them to help out hunting for water lines and such.
I think our industry has a divining rod of its own. Ours revolves around coming up with time estimates.
I have been involved on projects where people use a full, heavy, process to work out the estimate…. and with projects where darts are thrown against the wall. The only way the estimates seemed to get better was through experience which taught people more and more. However every project is different, and normally has different personel.
So, I need to pull out my divining rod to work out an estimate for this next project Adigio is working on…
