  • Melissa Thornton thinks this is interesting:

An approach that satisfies each of these goals is to estimate in story points. A nice feature of story points is that each team defines them as they see fit. One team may decide to define a story point as an ideal day of work (that is, a day without any interruptions whatsoever—no meetings, no email, no phone calls, and so on). Another team may define a story point as an ideal week of work. Yet another team may define a story point as a measure of the complexity of the story. Because of the wide variety of meanings for story points, Joshua Kerievsky has suggested that story points represent Nebulous Units of Time, or NUTs.
