Joel on Software - “Evidence Based Scheduling”

Assuming you had everything planned down to the last detail when you started work, EBS works great. To be honest, though, you may do some features that you hadn’t planned. You get new ideas, your salespeople sell features you don’t have, and somebody on the board of directors comes up with a cool new idea to make your golf cart GPS application monitor EKGs while golfers are buzzing around the golf course. All this leads to delays that could not have been predicted when you did the original schedule.
