Agile Abuse – Scenario 6

 

Sumant – Developer 1, Veena – Scrum Master

Veena – Sumant, we are almost at last day of sprint and your 3 pointers are not yet done. Do you see a risk? What is the tentative time you think you would take?

Sumant – I can’t tell you. Agile says that you cannot convert story points to time hence 3 pointers can take 3 days or 3 months. All valid in agile.

Veena – Why do you estimate your stories?

Sumant  – So that we know whether we can do that in our sprint or not.

Veena – And a sprint duration can be 3 months too?

Sumant – Oops, I got it.  My bad!

Challenge – Story point is not about time, not even a range.
