 In many ways the approach leads to better tracking of effort. When we track stories, estimation points and completion dates (sprint end dates), we know exactly which team did the work, we usually have a day-by-day task burndown and we have a proportional allocation (see [[how_do_i_convert_points_and_velocity_to_dollars|How Do I Convert Points and Velocity to Dollars?]] for more information). The stories are well documented and understandable (thanks to the user voice form). Team members say the same thing executives say when asked about work as there is a common language and understanding. This means when someone sees something a report and want to ask more detailed questions, no matter where that query leads, there will be a common understanding. In many ways the approach leads to better tracking of effort.

-Interestingly,​ if you do the analysis, and create frequency charts (e.g. How long does it take to complete a 2 point story) the data reflects this consistency.
