comment Confused about modifying the sprint backlog during a sprint
Hmm, that does help, especially your point about people not being clear about stories/items vs. tasks. However, I was wondering not only about adding new tasks, but also about changing/replacing them, such as in the event of a misunderstanding between the team and the product owner. I never have been able to tell what the "best practice" for that is, so if you have any input on that it would be appreciated.

comment Confused about modifying the sprint backlog during a sprint
What would you do if there was simply a misunderstanding, e.g. the team thought an item meant one thing while the product owner meant something else, assuming the items are of roughly equivalent size? This has actually happened at my work before, so it's not purely a theoretical question...

comment Confused about modifying the sprint backlog during a sprint
"during the planning, it is assumed, that everyone clearly knows and discusses about each of the features that they would be working on" Sure, and usually everything works out, but everyone involved is human, so sometimes things slip through the cracks. It's those cases I've been wondering about, because so many people seem so adamant that the sprint backlog can't be edited at all during a sprint under any circumstances.
