Hi,

I was reviewing some practice tests and got confused with the answer I received there so need a second opinion.

Q1. During a team meeting, members who are subject matter experts (SMEs) mention that they are continuously working on repetitive tasks, which has lowered motivation.
What should the agile practitioner do?
A. Organize a team-building activity to improve team morale
B. Have team members work in pairs to learn from each other and develop new skills
C. Ask team members to perform a value stream analysis of their activities
D. Add more resources to the team to help with the tasks

Q2. An agile team is working on a new product. To ensure that all unknown issues are clarified before committing to the scope, the team plans to work only on spike user stories for the next three sprints.
What should the agile coach do in this situation?
• A. Ensure that the spikes identify the risks early in the project to increase the chances of success
• B. Ensure that the business sponsor accepts the proposal and agrees to fund the additional spike sprints
• C. Recommend that, in the first sprint, user stories with higher priority be executed in addition to the spike
• D. Support the decision, because release planning will be improved, and the product backlog can be better groomed after all spikes are executed

Q3. While struggling to take ownership of delivery, an agile team fails to keep up with its sprint commitments.
What should the agile coach do?
• A. Work with the sponsor to develop team expectations
• B. Provide the customer with a list of deliverables and obtain agreement
• C. Encourage the team to more frequently interact with all stakeholders
• D. Work on finishing upfront product design rather than comprehensive documentation

Thank you.

Hi Sapna,

There is always a room for being subjective when it comes to narrowing correct answers. However, keep always eyes on which one is an agile practice. Being right as a common sense is not always the best answer.

In question 1, I lean toward A it seems the best to address lack of motivation.
Question 2, probably D
Question 3, C is more seen as a good agile practice, customer and stakeholders involvement.

Cheers
