One of our scrum teams is giving it a try to create a canned story around end-of-sprint wrap up. It's just a holder wrapping up several tasks that are done at the end of every sprint. The part that is new is that they've started including story points that for that story. The points don't change from sprint to sprint.
Arguments were made for and against doing it this way:
- It's already built into velocity, so it's not adding anything
- It's "getting credit" for story points that aren't for real stories
- It is an added measure of precision that should help with forecasting
- It gets the team credit for work that was done
Is this practice of capturing story points for sprint overhead work a positive, negative, or neutral? (Maybe there's a better way to ask that question.)
