How we improved our engineering estimates by 1082%

Engineers usually include buffers in all the tasks they estimate. This practice accumulates large buffers and promotes task anchoring (people take all the allotted time to finish a task even if they wouldn’t really need it).

With my teams we work out a single buffer that’s added in the end of each iteration. It’s available for anyone to use but its shared.
