In the project management world, story points vs. hours is akin to spaces vs. tabs for developers (tabs, obviously). Let me begin by saying that it really comes down to personal preference. In my (much too long) experience, I’ve led and been on teams that spent much more time arguing over the use of story points vs. hours than efficiencies gained by either one of them. That’s the tell-tale sign that you should just do what makes your team feel most comfortable.
