  • Abstract

    The ACE Process was established to provide a structured approach to developing estimates for teams that are striving to make Accurate and Confident Estimates. It begins with preparation activities and leveraging existing data prior to a planning session, describes specific activities applied during the planning session, and defines key finalization activities. It includes the introduction of some Agile (Scrum) elements that have been proven to promote full participation at all times using some enjoyable and effective techniques.
