The Change in Sprint Scope Graph shows the user stories added or removed during the Sprint life cycle, this graph gives a full view of scope change during the course of sprint.

Since scrum team is a self-organised team, Agile manifesto doesn’t directly address the scope changes in the sprint, it is left up to the sprint team to decide how to handle it. Not all the work is known by scrum team during the sprint planning, that is the reason some teams take some buffer area in their effort estimation to handle any new item which will be added into the running sprint.

Yodiz Sprint Scope Graph doesn’t help you to optimize your sprint scope, but it help you to understand what changes have been done during the sprint, so you can compare what was the original scope and how, by how much, by whom and when the sprint scope has changed.
