ROM estimate

When your boss asks you to estimate a project’s cost or duration while you meet in the elevator. It’s a valid way of estimating called Rough order of magnitude (ROM) which is -75:100% accurate.
But PLEASE email back your boss, stating all your assumptions, clarify it’s only a ROM, offer a range of variance, state the length of validity of the estimate and provide some background on how the estimate was created.
