Definition of Ideal Effort
StoryPoints are about Ideal Effort, which is the amount of work spent developing what we want – not dealing with Impediments. In other words, StoryPoints (Ideal Effort) are only about the Product, not about the difficulty (or ease) of development.
The ideal effort the team is hoping to spend on this Story is one week.
