In the middle of a sprint right now, the following problems have arose:
Urgent bug has cropped up that needs resolving
Stakeholder urgently needs a requirement integrated which is preventing a deliverable from going live. This was missed out during planning because they did not realise at the time they needed it.
In terms of story points both tasks are (0.5 points) after speaking to my dev team during a daily stand up. To fit this into the sprint I replaced an equivalent story in the sprint that is (1 points) with both of the 0.5.
0.5 + 0.5 = 1
If these tasks were not urgent, I would have put them in the backlog and waited for the next sprint cycle to begin.
Is this the correct way to handle the situation?
