Sprint Velocity

If a sprint is cancelled in-between does it affect the team's average sprint velocity?

It should not. Velocity is a measure of what a team is able to complete within a given Sprint (completed).Canceling a sprint is not a common occurrence and is done if it is determined the sprint goal is no longer valid.

Fully agree with Andrew.

Even if half an activity was finished and the sprint was over, you only count the activities that were fully complete to count the team velocity.

Muthu -

I fully support Andrew & Rami's feedback - the one caveat I would offer is that velocity is a means to an end and not the end unto itself.

Like any other human-driven metrics, variation in velocity is to be expected and our focus needs to be on value, quality & stakeholder satisfaction.
