In this episode of Development that Pays, Gary Straughan discusses the Planning Fallacy, a phenomenon in which predictions about how much time will be needed to complete a future task display an optimism bias and underestimate the time needed. He explores the example of a university curriculum project, and how the team underestimated the time needed to complete the project. He then goes on to talk about how this effect can be seen in the workplace, and what the solution might be. He encourages viewers to share their thoughts in the comments below, and to hit the logo for a new episode every Wednesday.
