The process by which you are asked to estimate a piece of work and then bullied by various means to back down your estimate.
Usually goes like this;
Bill Lumbergh: Hey what's happening? Aahh, now, are you going to go ahead and estimate this piece of work
You: Well, these are a very rough description of task/stories etc. If we roughly estimate those and add them up, this whole thing will take X weeks.
Bill Lumbergh: Yeah, that's it. Great. What can we get next week?
If the victim is features, that may be fine. If you are pushed into a total hacking frenzy, the whole thing becomes a bit boring.
