Re: Status Report & Progress Reports

The question is not clear. If reports need to be generated relating to baselines, it will usually show completion to date metrics (schedule, cost, work), in that way it is a progress report.
A progress report can also include the status of previously reported issues, risks, dependencies, etc

Re: Sprint Backlog

Development Team owns the Sprint Backlog and product owner can ask the development team to add a feature if there is a business value for the sprint goal.

In that case, negotiation is needed for the scope of sprint as sprint is a time-boxed event.

We prioritize risks based on risk exposure which is identified using:
