Here is our free PMI-ACP® Exam sample question of the week. This question is taken from The PM Exam Simulator at www.pm-exam-simulator.com/pmi-acp

After the end of the fourth sprint, the agile team members reported that they were unable to complete all user stories to be delivered in the sprint since the product owner pushed too many story points for the last sprint. As a result, the team had to work overtime and eventually got burned out. The product owner wants to hold the team accountable for the sprint failure. What is the best course of action for the team in this situation?

A. Accept responsibility for the failure but do not commit to a specific number of story points for the next sprint
B. Accept the responsibility for the failure and hold a retrospective to see how to improve the process for the next sprint
C. Apologize to the product owner and request doubling the team size to ensure the next sprint is completed properly
D. Not accept responsibility for the failure and hold the product owner accountable for pushing too many story points into the last sprint

HINT: Remember what reciprocal commitment is?

Correct Answer is B.

It is the responsibility of the team to meet commitments it makes. If the team does not meet the sprint goal, the team should accept responsibility for the failure and hold a retrospective to see how to improve the process for the next sprint so that a similar situation does not occur.
