This ensures that the meeting does not exceed the allocated time and helps to maintain focus and efficiency. It encourages participants to be concise and to prioritize discussions and decisions within the given time frame. Time-boxing is a key aspect of Scrum, as it helps to promote productivity and prevents meetings from becoming lengthy and unproductive.

      At start of the Project

    • B.

      After every Sprint Review

    • C.

      Before start of the Sprint

    • D.

      One time after Product backlog meeting

    Correct Answer
    C. Before start of the Sprint
    Explanation
    The Sprint Planning meeting occurs before the start of the Sprint. This meeting is held to plan and discuss the work that will be done in the upcoming Sprint. The team reviews the Product Backlog and selects the items they will work on during the Sprint. They also create a detailed Sprint backlog, define the Sprint goal, and estimate the effort required for each selected item. This meeting sets the direction and goals for the Sprint and ensures that the team is aligned and prepared to start the work.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What is the ideal duration of Sprint ?

    • A.

      4 Weeks

    • B.

      1 Week

    • C.

      2 - 4 Weeks

    • D.

      3 - 6 Weeks

    Correct Answer
    C. 2 - 4 Weeks
    Explanation
    The ideal duration of a sprint is typically between 2 to 4 weeks. This duration allows for a balance between delivering valuable increments of work and maintaining a sustainable pace for the development team. A shorter sprint duration, such as 1 week, may not provide enough time for the team to complete meaningful work, while a longer duration, such as 3 to 6 weeks, may increase the risk of scope creep and make it harder to adapt to changing requirements. Therefore, a sprint duration of 2 to 4 weeks is generally considered optimal.

    In the sprint review meeting, a live demonstration of a potentially shippable product increment should happen. This means that the development team showcases the work they have completed during the sprint, allowing stakeholders to see the progress made and provide feedback. It provides an opportunity for stakeholders to evaluate the product and suggest any changes or improvements. This helps in ensuring that the product meets the requirements and expectations of the stakeholders and allows for any necessary adjustments to be made to the product backlog.

  • 8. 

    Can Product Backlog be changed during the the Scrum cycle ?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    Yes, the product backlog can be changed during the Scrum cycle. The product backlog is a dynamic document that evolves as the project progresses and new information becomes available. It is expected that new items may be added, existing items may be removed or reprioritized, and details may be refined throughout the Scrum cycle. This flexibility allows the team to adapt to changing requirements and priorities, ensuring that the product backlog remains aligned with the needs of the stakeholders and the overall project goals.

    Rate this question:

    • D.

      Rules, Roles, Artifacts & events

    Correct Answer
    D. Rules, Roles, Artifacts & events
    Explanation
    The Scrum Framework is defined by rules, roles, artifacts, and events. The rules provide guidelines on how to implement Scrum effectively. The roles define the responsibilities and accountabilities of team members involved in the Scrum process. The artifacts are the tangible deliverables produced during the Scrum process, such as product backlog, sprint backlog, and increment. The events are the time-boxed meetings and ceremonies that occur within each sprint, including sprint planning, daily scrum, sprint review, and sprint retrospective. Together, these elements form the foundation of the Scrum Framework and help ensure a successful implementation of Scrum.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    What is the recommended size of a scrum team?

    • A.

      3 - 5 people

    • B.

      8 - 10 people

    • C.

      5 - 9 people

    • D.

      2 - 8 people

    Correct Answer
    C. 5 - 9 people
    Explanation
    A scrum team is recommended to have a size of 5 - 9 people. This range allows for effective collaboration and communication within the team. With fewer than 5 people, there may not be enough diverse skills and perspectives to tackle complex tasks. On the other hand, a team larger than 9 people can lead to coordination challenges and decreased productivity. Therefore, a scrum team of 5 - 9 people strikes a balance between having enough resources and avoiding excessive complexity.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Should the product backlog contain tasks?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    The product backlog should not contain tasks because it is a prioritized list of features, functionalities, and requirements that need to be developed for the product. It is meant to capture the "what" of the product, not the "how." Tasks, on the other hand, are specific actions or activities required to complete a feature or requirement. They should be derived from the product backlog items during sprint planning or as part of the team's internal planning process. Keeping tasks separate from the product backlog allows for better flexibility and adaptability in managing the development process.

    Rate this question:

  • 12.

    • D.

      Individuals, as determined during the Sprint planning meeting

    Correct Answer
    B. The team owns them collectively
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that the team owns sprint commitments collectively. In Scrum, the team is responsible for delivering the sprint commitments. This means that each team member has a shared responsibility and accountability for completing the work agreed upon during the sprint planning meeting. The team works together to ensure that all commitments are met and that the sprint goal is achieved. The Scrum Master facilitates the process but does not own the commitments themselves.

      15 minutes

    • D.

      As long as necessary

    Correct Answer
    C. 15 minutes
    Explanation
    The time-box for a daily Scrum meeting is typically 15 minutes. This time limit ensures that the meeting remains focused and efficient, allowing team members to quickly update each other on their progress, discuss any obstacles or challenges, and plan their work for the day. It also encourages everyone to be concise and to the point, preventing the meeting from dragging on unnecessarily.

They have the technical knowledge and understanding of the task at hand, allowing them to provide an accurate estimation of the effort required. The team collaborates to discuss and clarify any uncertainties or ambiguities in the requirement, ensuring a shared understanding before estimating the effort. This approach promotes transparency, accountability, and collective decision-making within the Scrum framework.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Items are randomly arranged

    • B.

      Into categories, P1, P2, P3 etc.

    • C.

      Large items at the top, small items at the bottom

    • D.

      Most important items at the top, least important items at the bottom

    Correct Answer
    D. Most important items at the top, least important items at the bottom
    Explanation
    The product backlog is arranged with the most important items at the top and the least important items at the bottom. This allows the development team to focus on the most valuable and critical tasks first. By prioritizing the backlog in this way, it ensures that the team is working on the most important features or user stories first, which can lead to faster delivery of value to the customers. Additionally, having the least important items at the bottom allows for flexibility and adaptability, as these items can be easily re-prioritized or removed if necessary.

    How often should the total work remaining in the Sprint Backlog be tracked?

    • A.

      At least once a week

    • B.

      At least once per Sprint

    • C.

      At least for every Daily Scrum

    Correct Answer
    C. At least for every Daily Scrum
    Explanation
    The total work remaining in the Sprint Backlog should be tracked at least for every Daily Scrum. This is because the Daily Scrum is a daily meeting where the team discusses their progress, plans for the day, and any obstacles they are facing. By tracking the total work remaining in the Sprint Backlog during the Daily Scrum, the team can get a clear picture of how much work is left and adjust their plans accordingly. This helps in ensuring that the team stays on track and can make necessary adjustments to meet their Sprint goals.
