After a long career, both developing and running teams, I am happy if the actual time is between 50% and 150% of the estimate. I try and adopt methodologies that focus on delivering value continuously rather than trying to deliver all the value at a specific point in time. If the product is always in a deliverable state, but maybe short on features, then it can actually be delivered at any time - in fact, it can be delivered continuously ๐Ÿ˜‰
