Correct Answer to Q#67: C

Decompose the features into stories is the best choice. The next step is for the team to continue analysis by decomposing features into stories. Such decomposition is part of adaptive planning.

Correct Answer to Q#71: B

Correct Answer to Q#72: D

Distributed teams cannot experience osmotic communication since not all team members are located in the same physical space. Although caves and common area, as well as pair programming, assume co-location, the definition of osmotic communication dictates that teams be co-located. Being located near each other and in the same physical environment enables knowledge to be shared and absorbed more easily as though through osmosis.

Correct Answer to Q#74: B

The primary value of an agile model is in the discussion and creation of the model, rather than the actual model. As a result, an agile model is barely sufficient rather than highly detailed.

Correct Answer to Q#75: D

If the time an Agile project team member has available is not 100% fully dedicated to one project, then the team member is said to be fractionally assigned. Fractional Assignment is particularly common in organizations where an individual is assigned to one or more projects simultaneously. This makes it extremely difficult for the individual to focus and achieve their maximum productivity on either project, and is not considered an Agile Project Management best practice.

Question 76: An agile team used planning poker to estimate user stories. After all team members read a user story, the facilitator asks everyone to choose a card with an estimated number of ideal days to complete a user story and then reveal the card. If estimates were widely different, the facilitator would immediately ask for re-estimates until all the estimates converge. What did the facilitator do wrong?

A ) Participants used ideal days as the unit for the estimates.
B ) Participants re-estimated immediately after everyone revealed their cards.
C ) Cards were revealed when the process should have been anonymous.
D ) The facilitator did nothing wrong and played by the rules.

Correct Answer to Q#76: B

By immediately re-estimating, the team misses out on the benefit of discussing the estimates and why they chose those estimates.
