    I ask for help please:


    1)Im using scrum, I use Trello and a board on a window with stickers for planning Product Backlog, priorizing, and everything is ok... when I finish first sprint, issues come out. Product owner brings new things not planned before and priorize them. How represent this on board? Do I have to create new user stories? What happend with the backlog for next sprint? get freeze? I don know how to handle this not planned issues.

    2): At the planning meeting, we (team), check the release backlog and imagine (only we can do this), the activities for each one, assign times (story points), etc. But, there is uncertainty always, and some things come out. What happen here? We already tell to product owner the user stories for this sprint and finally we cant finish for new issues that we cant see until the project is avanced.

    3) task stickers are general or very particular? I mean... i can just put a sticker that says "update database structure", or put 5 stickers "add field on table 1", "add field on table 2", "erase field from table 3"... another example. I we have to change code for the issues that I mention above, i put a sticker "implement code to fit requeriments" or "change code on prodecure XXX, to XXX", "implement code and change query on xxx", "delete IFs and change them to SWITCH CASE on file XXX"

    Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english.

    If new stories are discovered, they should be added to the produce backlog. If the Product Owner absolutely needs to have them done in the current iteration and cannot wait until the next iteration, he will need to work with the development team to replace an equally sized item with the new story (minus the amount of dev time used during the swap).

    If there are so many changes to the sprint that the sprint goal changes, the PO may consider canceling the sprint and replanning.

    During planning, there may still be a lot of unknowns. This is the nature of working with software and complex projects. To mitigate some of that uncertainty, the team should monitor the sprint burndown and track the work that's left against remaining team capacity. When it is discovered that the team cannot meet all commitments, they should approach the Product Owner and renegotiate the commitments.

    How the team breaks down stories into tasks for their sprint backlog is up to the development team. Pick an approach as an experiment and monitor how well it works. Inspect and adapt as needed.
