What are Story Points? [Video]

Use story points to estimate task complexity, leading to a more predictable velocity and avoiding pitfalls of hours-based estimates.

Story points rate the complexity of a task, relative to the complexity of other tasks. Over time, a team’s average velocity will reveal about how much complexity they can build in a given time. This helps predict how long a backlog will take to build. In this video, I explain the basics.
