Yes, this is one of the more pernicious culture hang-overs to cure
when you switch to Scrum. The urge to "finish it". Mea culpa.
However, now we are about making things "sufficient" and then doing
the next important thing, right?
So the right thing to do is: create a backlog item for each loose
end, and let the customer prioritise them separately. When you ask
them: would they rather tweak the headers of 5 reports or add a
warning message to a critical window... whatever they pick is right.
And you do that next.
We must stop trying to perfect our work products, and instead work to
perfect the business of our clients. It's their call.
Somebody remind me, if I blow this again tomorrow!
PS: we must get used to the possibility of a never-finishing backlog.
What gets to "finish" is the Sprint. As in life, the backlog will
always be there :-)
