I plan to try the assessement I this weekend but i fell on this curious sentence about the freeze of the sprint backlog in "The Scrum Master training Manual" which makes me wonder .... http://mgmtplaza.com/downloads/Scru...Manual.pdf
page 72 :
"The sprint backlog is frozen when the Sprint Planning is done, and no one can change it for any reason. "
Which is the exact opposite of what we can found in the "Scrum guide"
page 14 :
"The Development Team modifies the Sprint Backlog throughout the Sprint, and the Sprint Backlog emerges during the Sprint."
I tend to think the "Scrum Master training" is wrong because of common sense (and by googeling such a thing that ""sprint backlog frozen" which only gives 3 results containing the book itself ) .
As i'm not a native english speaker i may have missed something.
At some point i thought they wanted to talk about the product backlog items the team selected to put into the sprint backlog (let's freeze these ones in the product backlog, it's convenient fort the burndown charts for example)
but even that makes no sense to me because :
- product backlog grooming can be done anytime by the product owner/stakeholders/ the team
- sprint backlog are modified continuously by the team
- the Development team and the product owner can speak to each other anytime durint a sprint when the team asks for it.
So ... Do you have an idea of what they meant to say ?
