How to have better estimate to projects?

Seriously, there are no way in doing so. In 99 out of 100 times, it will just blow up. The only one left should end up cancelling or dumping the project. I am assuming most project owners are determined and makers are authentic.

Alternative of estimates

  1. Clarify before the project starts
  2. Communicate more often to check the progress
  3. Be transparent on progress and work details
  4. Resolve problems immediately

There are literally no way to improve estimates, but it is feasible to build trust between people. As long as you are trustworthy, changing plans can always get everyone to the original goal.
