- Jun 12 6:02 AMOksana,+1 to Ron's advice, except that he and I disagree on how easy it is to learn to split stories smaller. Given that he is the co-inventor of User Stories, though, he may very well be a much better teacher on this subject than I am.
To me, the Sprint abortion should only happen in truly extraordinary cases, like a major layoff, major company restructuring, gigantic change in business directions, etc. I would hope and think that most Scrummers never even see it happen in their lifetimes.
I'd be interested if you think the approach I suggested in my email from a few minutes ago would work for your team. (btw, I do not believe in holding back capacity for critical "express checkout" items)-------

So, since money talks, as you put it, it seems to me that you should set up your Scrum to make it easier for money to talk, not harder.I would wager a few days fees, double or nothing, that your stories can be made much shorter and that your team can easily learn to do it.I rarely see the need to abort Sprints. I often see the need to learn how to make stories smaller.
