Exactimation or Estimation?

How many times have you been asked for an estimate on the size or scope of something only to discover the requester was really asking for an Exact not an Estimate? How often do we fail to do release planning because we realize that the traditional release planning can take multiple days and we spend a fair amount of time generating technical debt by talking granularly regarding work that could be as far as 3 months out that we may never get to?
In the February Agile Mentor Newsletter, we discuss a way to still do relative size estimates, without getting lost in all of the details that could come as a result of inefficient release planning. We also take release planning to the next level with an explanation / walk through of how to get it done in 90 minutes or less! Take a look and I am looking forward to your feedback!
