The following scenario often happens with my team at the office. Let's say we decided to plan our Sprint this way:
- 50% new features
- 50% bug fixing (they are high priority AND unestimated as the fixes are easy, the hard and time-consuming bit is the investigation)
The Sprint goes well and we finish all the features, say X story points, and quite a few unestimated bugs.
Two questions come to mind:
- What is our Sprint velocity? Is it X?
- Assuming it is X; how do we plan the next Sprint using "yesterday's weather" (X story points) if we now want to do an 100% new features Sprint?
