Hi everyone, first I would like to thank you for this wonderful platform which is super rich with information.
Suggest me some Agile Automation tool anmes please Agile Automation,
I'm desperately looking for a bit of help! We are a small scrum team who recently turned agile (yay). The previous pm manager preferred using time estimations which was easy for pm's, not the agile-loving dev team. I want to teach my team how to switch to story point estimation and the major concerns of the team are - How do we explain cost to clients per sprint using points? Do we just take the budget total, divide into sprints (based on hours in a sprint) and cost this for a big project?
I have a very reluctant team so any help would be greatfuly appreciated!

What are the key metrics applicable for an agile project?
Should stories be kept in place of requirements to provide permanent system documentation or should a functionally organized set of requirements be maintained as this documentation. Either way, I am trying to figure out the best way to maintain a description/model of the system being maintained that is understandable to non technical and technical staff and provides a starting point for analyzing future changes to the system.
Previous conferences of Star West and the agile methodology in general have accepted the concept that testers and programmers are both subsets of the developer category. Is this still the accepted definition or are programmers the only team members that are considered developers.
When product owner express the userstories, scrum team asks for clarification for better understanding.What is the order of actions in sprint planning, is it that tasks of particular user story should be entered in in scrum board or acceptance criteria of the user should be defined first and then entering the details of develeopment tasks with the estimates derived? can you help me with this?
