Long story short, we are building a product and I have introduced then implemented the Scrum framework for product management. It has been working extremely well, and my team have done an amazing job.
The problem that I am having now, is that the main stakeholder is starting to get feature hungry to the point that the quality of deliverables is getting affected from an increased amount of items in the sprint.
Every time we do a good job, i.e. meet the sprint, the following week, the stakeholder then asks for more features. He feels that because we met the sprint, we can do more work the following week.
(Right now, he wants 3 features delivered per week)
My team then have to make up for this by upping their velocity. Eventually it has got to a point, where in one sprint we've had the kitchen sink thrown at us, and are expected to deliver triple amount of features relative to previous sprints. Due to the increased velocity that also means more bugs are appearing from features being rushed to production.
I am now in a situation when we are starting to fall behind on our sprints, with my co workers complaining that the workload is too much. I am also getting a lot more heat from the stakeholder for not completing all of the work that has been promised. At our next team meeting, I am think about talking to my stakeholder with the dev team about this, is this a good idea?
How can I handle this?
