    Identify the levels of planning in an agile model?1-Iteration Level2-Release Level3-Sprint Level4-Product Level

    • A.

      1,2,3

    • B.

      2,3

    • C.

      4

    • D.

      4,2,3,1

    Correct Answer
    D. 4,2,3,1
    Explanation
    The levels of planning in an agile model are identified as follows: 4-Product Level, 2-Release Level, 3-Sprint Level, and 1-Iteration Level. The planning process starts at the iteration level, where the team plans and executes an iteration. The iteration level planning is then rolled up to the sprint level, where multiple iterations are planned and executed. The sprint level planning is further rolled up to the release level, where multiple sprints are planned and executed. Finally, the release level planning is rolled up to the product level, where the overall product roadmap and strategy are defined.

    • C.

      Planning Poker

    • D.

      Velocity Driven estimation

    Correct Answer
    A. Disaggregation

    Disaggregation is the correct answer because it involves breaking down a story or feature into smaller, more manageable parts. This technique helps in estimating the effort required for each individual piece, making the overall estimation more accurate. By breaking down the task into smaller components, it becomes easier to understand and estimate the work involved in each part, leading to better planning and allocation of resources.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. As a < user > I want to < goal > so that < acceptance criteria >
    C. As a < user > I want to < goal > so that < benefits >
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "As a < user > I want to < goal > so that < acceptance criteria >,As a < user > I want to < goal > so that < benefits >". These user story formats are considered the best because they clearly define the user, their goal, and the desired outcome or benefit. The inclusion of acceptance criteria ensures that the user story is specific and measurable, while the mention of benefits highlights the value that the user expects to gain from the goal.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Expert opinion
    B. Triangulation
    C. Analogy
    D. Disaggregation
    Explanation
    Planning poker is a collaborative estimation technique that combines the use of expert opinions, triangulation, analogy, and disaggregation. Expert opinions are gathered from team members with relevant expertise to provide input on the estimated effort or complexity of a task. Triangulation involves comparing the task to similar past tasks to estimate its size. Analogy is used to compare the task to a similar one that has already been completed to estimate effort. Disaggregation involves breaking down the task into smaller, more manageable parts to estimate effort accurately. By incorporating these techniques, planning poker allows for a more accurate and collaborative estimation process in Scrum methodology.
