      In addition I use a trailing average over three sprints to smooth out normally variance.

      Remember velocity has only two uses:
      - Give a rough guide as to how much of the backlog the team will complete
      - Aid the team in planning for the next sprint

      It isn't a Management reporting metric.

      How do you explain this difference in velocity to management?

      You don't.

      Seriously, that two sprints differed in acheived velocity isn't something that should need justification to management.

      Or if you really need to, the explanation of what happened that you gave in your email should be enough. If it's not enough, you have bigger issues that the velocity figures.
