So start here to build your academic foundation, that can be put to work to build a foundation of validated experience of making estimates in the presence of uncertainty and protect yourself from fallacious claims that estimates are a waste, not needed, and produce bad resulting in the decision making process for those paying you to produce value.

Herding Cats

This quote demonstrates a lack of understanding of making decisions in the presence of uncertainty and the processes and events that create uncertainty. All project work has uncertainty. Uncertainty comes from the lack of precision and accuracy about the possible values of a measurement of a project attribute. There is naturally occurring variability from uncontrolled processes. If your project has no uncertainty, there is no need to estimate. 12, 2008.
