NO RATINGS
the real world problem with using the "Feature Management" approach on slide 15, is that management holds you to these wild guesses. They do not understand and do not want to accept the concept of this approach, management are not normally engineers. and what makes matters worse, is that they are WILD guesses. when you actually get into the project, these initial estimates can change drastically, and note, you have already spent appreciable time on the effort. and then, as the effort progresses, there are obsticles you had no way of anticipating. just wanted to point that even though this seems like a very simple and seductive approach to project management, it is very difficult if not impossible to implement in an actual working environment.

any thoughts on this?
