A while ago I blogged about “What’s the Point in estimating?“.
To be honest, I didn’t understand the concept of estimating in Points when we first adopted agile. Actually, I thought it sounded a bit stupid!
But I get it now, and it makes a lot of sense.
I would add to my original blog post now, that developers are more inclined to give a relative estimate in points based on minimal information about a feature, whereas to estimate in days implies precision and can be a barrier to getting someone to commit to how big it is.
