    Have you tried the three-point-estimation method?

    Break down a feature into todos and estimated each individually. If you can't estimate with a certain certainty, you need more infos. Acquiring infos can also be estimated.

    Don't get me wrong, after doing all this you will still be off by a spectacular margin, but you'll look like a real pro! The product owner will love you!

    (And if you add some time-blocking techniques into that mix, oh boy! Management will drop their panties left and right!)
