Changes in the Sprint
The Sprint Planning meeting was shorter than expected as task breakdowns will be prepared separately, rather than with the whole team present. We will monitor whether this change proves positive and streamlines the Sprint Planning meeting without adversely affecting the sprint.
We implemented a 3 week sprint (up from 2 weeks long) as recommended during the Sprint Retrospective
We changed the requirement for a Demo for each story to a Validation
No estimation meeting will take place this sprint (we quickly estimated some items during the sprint planning).

On 28/09 item #143 (closed) (Mercury multiple acquisition mode) worth 5 points was completed, however this item was not planned for the sprint.
