Our business lives are full of fixed deadlines: the date of a new product launch, publication of year end results, business planning, budgeting, annual conferences etc. Like it or not deadlines are a reality, and the need to commit to these a necessary evil.

Despite this, many in the Agile world are not prepared to commit to fixed delivery dates when building software; some will even resist the need for estimation and long-term planning. This challenge is further exacerbated by business sponsors who demand fixed scope and fixed budgets.

This webinar explores commitment in Agile. It discusses the differences between estimation, planning and commitment, and provides practical guidance on the use and management of different contingencies.
