When the programmers estimate a story, they should include everything they’ll need to do to complete the story. They need to factor in such things as testing their code, talking to the customer, perhaps helping the customer plan or automate acceptance tests, and so on. If they don’t include these activities, it is like they are expecting shopping for a couch to take only an hour.
