   * High / low estimates: The approaches generate a single number to estimate size of a Story. When forecasting the future we should be talking about a range of possible values rather than a single number as the future is not certain.   * High / low estimates: The approaches generate a single number to estimate size of a Story.

-  * Probabilities: A more rigorous approach is to use actual probabilities to talk about what might happen. See [[blog:why_a_plan_based_on_average_velocity_will_fail|Why a Plan Based on Average Velocity Will Fail?]] for the thinking here.+  * Probabilities: A more rigorous approach is to use actual probabilities to talk about what might happen.

   * Dependencies: Estimation approaches that directly factor a understanding of dependencies to drive better information.

   * Expansion: Estimation approaches that also factor in expansion of scope, since in most cases scope increases rather than decreases, as the team implements and the customer sees what is possible.   * Expansion: Estimation approaches that also factor in expansion of scope, since in most cases scope increases rather than decreases, as the team implements and the customer sees what is possible.
