comment What are the most relevant books on software project estimation?
The description of why conventional planning fails refers to the following issues: Planning by Activity instead of feature, delays through multi-tasking, features not being developed (and delivered) in priority order, ignoring existing data and error rates, and turning estimates into commitments. To summarise, the book tries to change the planning focus from just "is this on time and on budget?" to add "am I delivering the highest value items first?" and "am I adjusting my estimates and plans along the way?"
