Our SCrum team considers a good practice to have a know buffering (measured) for unknown items that could occur inside the sprint and are accepted by the team. Is that a good practice?

How do you properly staff when you have 2 programs that will have different levels of requirements over a 12 month period sharing the same group of 26 development teams? Basically a program to develop applications on a new platform and a program to continue supporting applications on the existing platform. Is it ok to have teams move between programs every few sprints, for example, based on demand? It’s not possible to dedicate X number of teams to each because the requirements for the new platform are not yet well understood, so a work in progress.

Our scrum team adds enough work to keep the developers busy during the sprint but we are always rolling over due to the QA not being completed. How do we get out of that cycle? If we reduce what we put in the sprint, then Devs may be looking for work mid sprint.

How do you respond to a business where the requirements change (which is fine…we embrace change), but too soon before a sprint starts. So, we cannot possibly refine, understand and estimate this new change in time for sprint planning…yet most of the time these changes are labeled as the highest priority work? This comes from a Product Owner primarily, feeling like I am forcing work into the Development team and needing to put in 12 hour days to stay ahead.

However the Dev Team has User Stories defined which complies with INVEST Criteria and have acceptance criteria, they prefer to test all Users Stories when MVP (minimium valuable product) is achieved. That could be counterproductive with having an increment at the end of the sprint., Have you had any situation like this? Thougths?

How much emphasis should be placed on measuring the efficency/delivery output of the team by means of burndown charts, sprint reports etc? The team is performing well, but there is a pressure from upper up to report such metrics.
