What are Story Points?

Story Points

Story points are a method of ranking a development task’s complexity. There are a few different methods for doing this, the most common is to rank items using the following sequence of numbers 1,2,4,8,16. The numbers double to indicate that a task is twice as complex as the previous number. If you get tasks that are 8 or 16, you should reassess them to see if it’s possible to break that task into smaller items. The concept behind using story points is that it allows you to identify how much development work can be done within a sprint. Within each sprint meeting, the team would select the number of tasks that equate to the story point total and should be able to maintain the same velocity each sprint. It may take a few Sprint Cycles to identify what this number is.
