Correct Answer to Q#77: C


The process can and should always be analyzed for any improvements, for example, during retrospective meetings. However, if a set of practices used by a team has proven to be effective, i.e. became a set of best practices, using the same best practices in the next project would be the best option among the answer choices given.

Correct Answer to Q#78: B

With estimating, there is a point of diminishing returns, where additional effort put into estimation yields a minimal improvement in accuracy. Therefore, the team can fine-tune, but should not put in too much time or effort in estimating.

Correct Answer to Q#79: A

The 'Five Whys' analysis method has its origin with Toyota and works well for agile teams performing a root cause analysis during a retrospective.

Exam Reference: Lean-Agile Software Development: Achieving Enterprise Agility, Alan Shalloway, Guy Beaver, James R. Trott, 2010, Value Stream Mapping - Root Cause Analysis; see also A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, (PMBOK® Guide) – Sixth Edition, Project Management Institute Inc., 2017, Page(s) 292

Correct Answer to Q#80: D

Unless stated differently, on agile projects the cost and the schedule are fixed, while the scope is flexible. Therefore, meeting with the product owner to discuss the scope reduction, or in other words, to re-prioritize the backlog, is the best option among the answer choices provided.

Correct Answer to Q#81: A

Forecasted velocity is commonly used in a new agile project's first iteration because there is no historical data available to help estimate this velocity.
