QUESTION 73

A development team in your company has been unsuccessful delivering software by its deadline. You join the team as its new scrum master. The previous scrum master did not understand the importance of the length of a sprint. You need to define how long the sprints should be. Which two factors should you consider to determine sprint length? (Each correct answer presents part of the solution. Choose two.)

 

A.

The iteration length should be long enough to ensure than no more than 20 percent of the total effort is spent performing deployment and administrative tasks.

B.

The iteration length should be consistent.

C.

The iteration length should be flexible.

D.

The sprint length should be long enough to create a usable and potentially releasable product.

E.

The iteration length should be longer than one month.

 

Correct Answer: BD

Explanation:

Sprint length

I asked Ken Schwaber once how long a Sprint should be. His answer was, “As short as possible and no shorter.” Sprints of longer than four weeks (one month) have a smell–the smell of water falling. When a Sprint’s length is longer than a month, the definition of what is being built may change or complexity and risk may increase. By limiting the maximum length of a Sprint, at most one month of development effort would be wasted, rather than several months in a classic waterfall project.

Conversely, Sprints with a length of less than one week are possible, but should be executed only by a high-performance Scrum Team. Even with very short Sprints, the overhead of the inner events must be factored in, leaving even less time for actual software development. Teams working in “micro sprints” like these need to be on their A-game every day. Ideally, the length of the Sprint does not change. If it must, it can only change in between Sprints, as a result of a decision made collaboratively during the prior Sprint’s retrospective meeting. Any change to the length of a Sprint will cause disruption to the Development Team’s cadence. This will correct over time, as will its Velocity.

QUESTION 74

You are using the Microsoft Solution Framework (MSF) for Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Process Improvement 6.0 process template. A stakeholder has requested a change, but the change request has not received the attention that it requires. You need to escalate the change request. What should you do?

 

A.

Create an impediment work item.

Link the new impediment to the change request.

Escalate the impediment to get the change request on track.

B.

Create a bug work item.

Link the new bug to the change request.

Escalate the bug to get the change request on track.

C.

Create an issue work item.

Link the new issue to the change request.

Escalate the issue to get the change request on track.

D.

Create another change request work item.

Link the new change request to the change request.

Escalate the change request to get the change request on track.

 

Correct Answer: D

Explanation:

If a change request does not receive the attention that it requires, escalate the matter by creating an issue work item. Link the new issue to the change request, and escalate the issue to get the change request impact assessment on track.
