Correct Answer: B

This is an example of Reciprocal Commitment, where the Agile project team commits to delivering the specified functionality 100 % according the definition of done at the end of the iteration, and the product owner, organization and customer agree not to change priorities during the iteration and leave the team alone to "do the work".

Question 5: At the daily standup meeting, the agile team has raised an impediment where one of the developers has been withdrawn from the team by the developer’s line manager to complete their previously committed tasks from another project. As the result, the team will be unable to meet their sprint goal. What should have been done differently to avoid this impediment?

A. The team should have considered human resources availability while planning the sprint.
B. The team should have worked faster during the sprint before the developer has been withdrawn.
C. The team should have added buffers to each user story to account for the unknown risks.
D. The line manager should have not let the developer go to work on the agile project in the first place.

Correct Answer: A

Prioritization of work is not solely based on the customer value. There are other factors to consider, such as risks, dependencies between user stories, and people’s availability, to name the few.

Correct Answer: B

Value stream mapping is used to break down and map a multi-step process with the goal of identifying those tasks or activities that cause unnecessary delay and inefficiency. The identification and elimination of these non-value added activities decrease cycle times and improve the overall process efficiency.

Correct Answer: C

Working Agreements is an Agile Project Management term that refers to the standards that each Agile team defines (by consensus) to outline the specific rules for how the team will work together during the course of the project. They are normally considered a 'verbal contract', and should be displayed as an information radiator in the team’s Commons space. These are sometimes referred to as Rules of Engagement on non-Agile projects. Teaming Agreements are contractual arrangements between two or more entities to form a partnership or joint venture for the duration of a project. Standard Operating Procedures are used in both Project Management and Organizational Management and are not specific to Agile.

Correct Answer to Q#8: B

Adaptive planning is a technique the employs iterative development cycles in order to produce incremental product deliverables and allows you to adapt your project plans based on the current reality that surrounds and affects your Agile project. Rolling Wave Planning is a form of Progressive Elaboration that focuses more on the near term plans and rolls into the longer term as more information becomes available about the project requirements. Progressive Planning and Incremental Planning are not terms associated with Agile product development.

Correct Answer to Q#9: A

Sitting back and observing the team members’ may be interpreted as a lack of action. However, as a first step, it is important for an experienced agile coach to sufficiently observe the situation.

Correct Answer to Q#10: C

Crystal comes from Alistair Cockburn’s characterization of projects along the two dimensions of “size” (meaning the size of the project team) and “criticality” (meaning the damage that will be caused if the developed product or system fails).

Question 11: When it comes to estimating the requirements on your Agile projects, there are three different “Sizing Units” that can be used to determine the size (referring here specifically to “Level of Effort”) of your Agile project requirements (referring here specifically to “user stories”), and the specific tasks to meet those requirements. Which of the Following is not recognized as a “unit” that can be used for estimating the size of the requirements on your Agile project?

A) Real time
B ) Relative size
C) Ideal time
D) Ideal size

Correct Answer to Q#11: D

"When it comes to estimating the effort to complete the requirements on your Agile projects, there are three different “Sizing Units” that can be used:

Real Time, which is sometimes called Real Days or Actual Days. This refers to the actual time during each day that the team members are available and are productively working on specific Agile project tasks.

Ideal Time, or Ideal Days, where you make the assumption that your Agile project team members will have no interruptions in their work, such as checking email or attending meetings, and will be 100% productive every hour of every day.

Relative Size, which is the recommended “sizing unit” to use for requirements size estimation on your Agile project. This sizing unit allows you to estimate the “level of effort” a user story will take to complete, relative to the other user stories you will be performing on your Agile project.

Ideal Size is not a recognized sizing unit for estimating the level effort of effort to complete an Agile project requirement."

There are three types of techniques that Agile project teams can use for solving problems or meeting open-ended challenges. These are Brainstorming, Free-For-All and Silent Idea Generation. Of these three techniques, Brainstorming is considered the most effective. Fist of Five is a technique used in Agile estimation.

Correct Answer to Q#13: B

Although Continuous Process Improvement should always be on the minds of all Agile project team members, the Iteration Retrospective Meeting is a formal ceremony used in Agile. This event is held at the end of each iteration where lessons learned during the iteration are reviewed, and specific plans of action are implemented during the very next iteration to prevent these issues from occurring again on the project.

Correct Answer to Q#14: C

Simplicity and reflection are core agile practices. Simplicity, "the art of maximizing the amount of work not done", is one of the Agile Manifesto principles. Reflection is in the center of iteration retrospectives aimed to improve the team's process and performance. Focusing on reflection and simplicity will most likely help the team improve its process, making this the best answer to the question asked.

Correct Answer to Q#16: B

The four distinct steps in the Value Stream Mapping process are (in order); 1) Identify the value stream target, 2) Define the current state, 3) Clarify the opportunity, and 4) Depict the desired future state. Describe the Opportunity is not a valid Value Stream Mapping process step.

Correct Answer to Q#18: A

The four main artifacts used in Agile project management and product development are the Iteration Plan, Iteration Backlog, Iteration Burndown Charts and Iteration Burnup Charts. The only type of "vision statement" used as an artifact in Agile is the Product Vision Statement. The "Iteration Vision Statement" is a completely fake term that we made up for this question.
