Here's a question I address in my book: "Project Management the Agile Way:Making it work in the enterprise"
Why plan, why schedule? Indeed, the question might even be: Why estimate? It’s all going to change anyway.
The answer is quite clear:
If there are no plans, any outcome is acceptable; if there are no plans, there is nothing to estimate; without estimates, there is no reason to measure. Without measurements, there will be no benchmarks, no improvement, and no answer to the questions of where are we? and what are we doing?
In fact, without a plan, anywhere and anything will do.
