I do not believe that estimation is a requirement in the development world. I have no problem with t-shirt sizing (dev days, dev weeks, dev months, etc) but even then I’ve had leadership “hold developers accountable” to the rough estimate. It causes more problems than it’s worth, corners are cut, teams get stressed and burnout, technical debt isn’t paid off, etc.
