    Switching priorities is fine though, but then you push something else out of the sprint. (The company i work for skipped sprints, we just keep a short backlog queue and refill it if it runs low and throw stuff out if it grows, releases are done asap (which means several times / day as most new features get pushed out in the simplest form possible and then iterated on or killed off based on hard metrics and feedback from real users)

    It sounds to me Kanban, or even Lean Software Development, are a better fit to your company. Don't try to stick to Scrum if it doesn't fit your needs, we switched to Kanban a long time ago because it fits a lot better for our organisation. At least, that's what I did at our company some time ago :)
