Predicting the future without planning

When will we be done? Are we on-track/on-budget? These are a couple of the questions I have been asked by my stakeholders when working with agile teams. How do you answer these questions without slipping into a world where the entire backlog is defined and estimated at the start? In this session I will discuss some approaches I have used to successfully provide responses to questions like these without defining everything up front.
