Delivery Progress - Not Based on Story Points?!

Matt Richards August 2, 2023

I feel like this needs more visibility, as it seems like a massive oversight.

Frankly I'm shocked to learn that Delivery Progress is based on the number of issues and not the number of cumulative story points. An Idea that is connected to an Epic with two Issues, one with 1 point and another with 5, is not 50% complete after either of those Issues is Done.

It would seem to me that this should be addressed urgently, as it is a mis-representation of progress.

@Tanguy Crusson - Can you comment on a timeline for a fix here? Or perhaps I am missing something?

Hey folks, what you see in product is a V1 and based on the feedback we've received we're actively working on factoring in Story Points. I'll have more to share when we release but it's not too far away. Sit tight!

Thank you for the update, Rohan! AND thank you for watching the forums and engaging with users on their feedback.

Story points are an estimation tool, not a progress measurement.

There is nothing to "fix" here, Jira handles story points as estimates, as it should do.

@Rohan Swami I am trying to enable this on my product board but when I select Story Points I end up seeing all at 0. Not sure why it's not capturing the story points at all? Any help would be amazing, thank you!

Hi @Valentina Migliore my best guess is that you're trying to connect to Jira issues in a team-managed project. Currently story point estimates are only supported in company-managed projects. You can see your project type in the bottom left corner of the left-nav in Jira Software. If that's not your issue, then please create a bug by selecting 'Give feedback' in the bottom left corner of Jira Product Discovery and we can help you with debugging.

@Rohan Swami I've cleared my cache and I'm still not seeing it available like you've posted in the image. Is it somewhere else or am I missing something? 😅

@jack_saxton You'll need to hover here to switch from Issue Count to Story Points. If that doesn't work for you please ping me at rswami @ atlassian dot comScreenshot 2023-11-03 at 1.33.18 pm.pngScreenshot 2023-10-30 at 12.19.54 pm.png

This confirms that I was at least in the right place, but I don't have the same option that you're showing in that image. 😅 This is what I see in that area.

This would be very helpful to add. Our leadership team and board want to report on Engineering Investment (where is the $ being spent?), and align it to the different buckets of work we do. Epics are the key delivery-groupings, and we relate one/many Epics to one Idea (which lives in JPD)... We want to leverage the story point aspect as a proxy for actual-effort... Looking foward to when this launches!

Hi @Matt Richards ,

That all depends on the definition you give to "Story Points"

For me SP = a weigth, a classification (like easy, hard, impssible). When you use it like that (see estimation and planning poker in Scrum for instance) ... you can't just calculate with it. 1SP is not one hour or 1 day of work ... it's just "an easy story to do".

Matt Richards August 2, 2023

I agree that people's definition and use of Story Points varies. Neither Agile nor Scrum define Story Points explicitly, but Atlassian describes it as a "Measurement of complexity and/or size of a requirement" which I think is a fair description.

As is typical of many scrum teams, we use the Fibonacci sequence values to define Story Points (1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21). The non-linear nature of these values means that we cannot directly tie them to time. Only that a three is loosely three times as much effort as a 1. We consistently emphasize that attempting to tie sizes to time is a bad practice, and we reinforce the idea that sizing is relative.

All that being true, it is our opinion that basing Delivery Progress off of Story Points is a great deal more valuable of a view than is the number of issues. This perspective should not be controversial, as is evidenced by the widespread adoption of views like burn down charts, which use size estimates to understand progress towards completion/delivery.

Agreed-It would be great to have another column for Delivery Progress in Product Discovery to be reflected in Story points-this would be a true way to capture what we would also see in Advanced Roadmaps. Also if we can have Product Discovery Ideas available to be tagged as Parent Link- they would also show up in Advanced Roadmap and provide true connectivity between an Idea and its Delivery Roadmap- any possibility of having that?
