Q24. 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. 

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.

Q26. Your company is developing a web application by using the Microsoft Visual Studio Scrum 

2.0 process template. The development team committed to deliver a set of Product Backlog Item (PBI) work items for the upcoming sprint. 

You implement the initial tests for the PBIs in scope for the upcoming sprint. You plan to add more tests during the sprint. 

You need to ensure that your test plan automatically includes any new tests. 

What should you do? 

A. . Create a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that lists all the acceptance tests for the PBIs. 

. Use a Pivot table to report the test cases per PBI. 

B. . Create test case work items for the acceptance tests. 

. Link these test cases to the PBI work items. 

. Add a query based test suite that selects all test cases linked with the PBIs in scope. 

C. . Create test case work items for the acceptance tests. 

. Link these test cases to the associated PBI work items. 

. Add the PBIs to the test plan. 

D. . Create test case work items for the acceptance tests. 

. Create a suite in Microsoft Test Manager (MTM) and add all test cases to this suite. 

Answer: C 


Q27. You are utilizing the Microsoft Visual Studio Scrum 2.0 process template. 

You lead a development team that includes business analysts, developers, and testers. 

You need to capture requirements and acceptance criteria. You also need to ensure that requirements and criteria can be versioned and tracked against individual test cases. 

What should you do? 

A. Create a document that details the requirements and acceptance tests. Store the document in TFS source control. 

B. Create a document that details the requirements and acceptance tests. Store the document in the SharePoint site associated with the team project. 

C. Add product backlog item (PBI) work items. 

D. Create a spreadsheet that details the requirements and acceptance tests. Store the spreadsheet in TFS source control. 

Answer: C 

Explanation: In Team Foundation Server, the Product Backlog Item (PBI) work item type enables the Scrum Team to capture all of these various requirements with as little documentation as possible. In fact, only the title field is required. Later, as more detail emerges, the PBI can be updated to include business value, acceptance criteria, and the Development Team’s latest estimation of effort.

Q29. Your company is developing a new version of an existing application. The current list of feature requests is made up mostly of three years’ worth of bug reports and help desk support call data. 

The company has no formal process for requesting input from its customer base. 

You need to be able to prioritize the information and develop an accurate, useful list of feature requests. 

What are three possible ways to accomplish this goal? (Each correct answer presents a complete solution. Choose three.) 

A. . Use focused customer interviews to review the bug reports and help desk data. 

. Create the requirements documents from the resulting information. 

B. . Create a single requirements document that includes all the bug reports and help desk call items. 

. Put this document on the backlog of the project. 

C. . Working from the bug reports and help desk data, create an Excel workbook project matrix that ranks items based on complexity and priority. 

. Determine the project requirements for the next iteration that includes the top ranking items on the matrix. 

D. . use storyboarding diagrams and work with the stakeholders to filter, map, and expand on the bug reports and help desk call data. 

. Review the diagrams with the stakeholders and create requirements documents based on that review. 

E. . Hold a series of joint application design (JAD) sessions with representation from support, development, help desk, and customers. Filter out the bad items from the bug reports and help desk data. 

. Create formal requirements documents based on the results of these sessions. 

Answer: BCE 


Q30. 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.

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. 

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.
