In the Scrum world, one of the frequently asked questions is – Do we accept changes within a sprint, or not? If we do, won’t it disrupt our sprint plan that is in progress? And, if we don’t, would we be less of an ‘agile’ team?
- We should freeze the scope for the sprint and treat all changes as a new requirement – a new story.
- As an agile team, we should focus on delivering value to the customer, and if a change to the story means more value (even if it comes late in the sprint), we should aim to deliver it.
