I wouldn't bother reading this article.> Here's something you may have not been looking for.
There's one major flaw in it. The team goes from using story points to "counting stories" because an ignorant manager thinks that velocity==productivity. What's to stop the manager from asking the team to "go faster" by finishing a higher story count each week?
Seems like the root cause was never addressed, and that's sad.
It's also funny that the guy the author quotes responds in the first comment to disagree with him.-------

While I'm sure you'll eventually find what you want to. Here's something you may have not been looking for.http://www.industriallogic.com/blog/stop-using-story-points/

He'd like the backlog fulle re-estimated each time the order changes or a dependent story changes.Instead of talking to the hand, I'd like some good whitepapers or practices that clearly explain the differences between the approaches one might take to relative estimation ans writing of story points.I've got a pretty good idea on how I'd like to do it, but I can't find the handholds to get this guy on board. He asked for readign material, so at least I have that :).Jesse
