17- The company director approaches a member of the development team to add some new functionality in to the current Sprint. What should they do?
1. Add it in to the Sprint
2. Add it in to the Sprint and remove a similar sized piece of work
3. Add it in to the next Sprint
4. Inform the Product Owner and get the two talking asap

Answer : 4

You need to resist changes to scope mid-Sprint – this breaks the committment between The Team and the Product Owner. A developer really needs to let the Product Owner deal with this as it is their domain. May be the director is not aware that this functionality is not required, or it is lower in priority. Either way it is best that those two thrash it out first without immediately changing direction mid-Sprint which is not good practice.


18- Scrum is the appropriate weapon of choice for any kind of software development?
1. true
2. false

Answer : 2

Scrum is great for tackling large, complex and/or risky projects. But if you have a small, easy and/or predictable project you might like to just crack out the waterfall. Surprising answer – but true. Also, let me know where you work because I have rarely find such projects – but then again they do sound a bit boring.


19- How should the Product backlog be organised?
1. Longer tasks at the top
2. Easier tasks at the top
3. Most important at the top
4. Randomly

Answer : 3

The Product backlog must be organised in to business priority. It is sometimes necessary to rejuggle according to risk and size, but ultimately the business case for each task takes priority.


20- Which of the following is NOT an artifact in a typical Scrum project?
1. Product backlog
2. Gantt chart
3. Sprint backlog
4. Burndown char

Answer : 2

There is still some debate as to whether there are three or four artifacts. However it can be said with certainty that a Gantt chart is NOT a typical Scrum artifact. The Scrum Primer, MountainGoatSoftware.com, and Do Better Scrum all include the product backlog, sprint backlog, and burndown charts in their lists of artifacts.


21- Which of the following is NOT a Scrum role?
1. Project manager
2. Team
3. ScrumMaster
4. Product owner

Answer : 1

Mike Cohn discusses in Chapter 8 of Succeeding with Agile, how former Project Managers need to change to become effective Scrum Masters.
From Do Better Scrum: « The responsibilities of the traditional project manager are divided over the three roles in the Scrum Team:
The Product Owner manages the product (and return on investment)
The ScrumMaster manages the process
The team manages itself. »


22- A Sprint planning meeting happens everyday at the same time and place. True or false?
1. True
2. False

Answer : 2

This describes the Daily Scrum. A Sprint planning meeting occurs at the beginning of each Sprint with the view to organise the work for that Sprint.


23- How will The Team know when a backlog item is completed?
1. The test team say it is completed
2. The ScrumMaster says it is completed
3. It meets the team and product owner’s negotiated definition of done
4. When the Sprint is completed
5. None of the above

Answer : 3

It is important to learn that the Sprint planning meeting is the time and place where The Team and the Product Owner need to agree what will constitute « done » for each Spring backlog item. Everything follows from this. An experienced ScrumMaster will sniff out any discussions or ideas that will deviate from this agreement.

2. Project managers
3. Comprehensive documentation
4. No documentation
