Effort Estimates in Abstract Units (Points)

Relative abstract effort units work great for experienced agile teams. Points are a relative measure of user story size. It is recommended to use discrete points scale. For example: 1,2,3,5,8,13,20. This scale means that user story with 3 points is about two times simpler than user story with 5 points, no more.

Estimation with points is easier, since you estimate-by-compare: "We'll give this story 2 points because it seems like it's twice as big as that 1-point story and about half as big as that 4-point story".

Targetprocess is an agile project management tool. According to the latest customer survey, the key differentiators of this tool are:
