I had a following question in my PSK assessment.
When using Scrum with Kanban, who can change the WIP limits in the Definition of Workflow when a high priority work emerges from the Sprint?
- Product Owner
- Scrum Master
- Development Team
- No one, as WIP limit cannot be changed in the Sprint
- No one, as 'High Priority' work is not a valid reason for changing the WIP during the Sprint.
Following one the reference topic for this question but unable to answer this question.
- Limiting Work in Progress (WIP) in Scrum with Kanban - What / When / Who / How
- The Kanban Guide for Scrum Team - can help in understanding meaning of all terms used in this question like WIP limit, DoW (Definition of Workflow), Scrum Sprint with Kanban etc.
According to reference document: Development team can do it but when it comes to Sprint Backlog. There is no clear indicator this question belongs to Sprint Backlog only. And if this question covers entire Sprint then The Scrum Team decides what to do with high priority task.
What can be the best answer out of all choices.
