As a project manager, I am interested in the effort (estimated and actual). While Sprint based estimation is story point based, how can I translate them to effort so that I can track and report them.
Time and again I hear that we should refrain from associating hours to story point; but as a PM I need to track my effort as hours. Am I missing something here?
I thought it would be good to explain why I needed this. This is from two perspectives:
Billing (Client billing needs to be done in hours)
Productivity improvements comparison and organizational base lining.
