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 – The story point is not about time, not even a range.
Scenario 7 – We will unearth the acceptance criteria and requirements for a given story as we continue with development. Writing a one-liner description for a story should be fine and we will keep looking at it while working in progress during the sprint.
