Question 4

Toward the end of the Iteration, the Product Owner raises a red flag stating there is an additional requirement that needs to be added to the current Iteration. The Agile Team could handle the requirement if they work late and over the next weekend. What should the Scrum Master do?



Answer : B

According to theScrum Masterarticle on the Scaled Agile Framework website, the Scrum Master should talk to the Product Owner, compare the new work to existing backlog priorities, and negotiate a sustainable solution when the Product Owner raises a red flag stating there is an additional requirement that needs to be added to the current Iteration. The article states that ''The Scrum Master helps the Product Owner manage the backlog effectively by facilitating backlog refinement and prioritization. The Scrum Master also helps the Product Owner understand and apply the concepts of WSJF, MVP, MMF, and other economic prioritization methods. The Scrum Master supports the Product Owner in negotiating with stakeholders, customers, and the team to ensure that the backlog items are clear, concise, and ready for implementation.'' Therefore, the correct answer is B, talk to the Product Owner, compare the new work to existing backlog priorities, and negotiate a sustainable solution. The other options are not accurate, as they do not follow the Scrum principles of self-organization, time-boxing, and delivering value. Meeting with the team and accepting the work if they agree to work overtime (A) would violate the team's autonomy and sustainability. Accepting the work and extending the Iteration would disrupt the cadence and synchronization of the team and the ART. Refusing the new requirement (D) would ignore the feedback and collaboration of the Product Owner and the stakeholders.


Question 5

In a SAFe Roadmap, which PIs are committed?



Answer : A

According to theRoadmaparticle on the Scaled Agile Framework website, in a SAFe Roadmap, only the first PI is committed. The article states that ''The committed PI shows the results of the teams' most recent PI Planning event where they committed to event the program's PI Objectives. The forecast may provide the deliverables and milestones for the following two PIs.'' Therefore, the correct answer is A, the first one. The other options are not accurate, as they imply that more than one PI is committed, which is not the case. The roadmap is a forecast, not a guarantee, of future PIs.


Question 6

How does the Incremental Capability Review help streamline execution reviews?



Answer : A

According to theAdapting Governance Practices to Support Agility and Lean Flow of Valuearticle on the Scaled Agile Framework website, the Incremental Capability Review is an objective-based progress review that replaces the traditional phase-gate reviews. The article states that ''The Incremental Capability Review (ICR) is a new governance practice that provides a more effective way to measure progress and manage risk. It is based on the principle of objective evidence of working systems rather than subjective opinions and documentation. The ICR is a lightweight, collaborative, and transparent review process that aligns with the PI cadence and events. It leverages the System Demo, Inspect and Adapt, and PI Planning to provide frequent and incremental checks of the solution's fitness for purpose and compliance with relevant standards and regulations.'' Therefore, the correct answer is A, it is an objective-based progress review. The other options are not accurate, as the ICR is not the default for phase-gate reviews, it is not a document-based progress measure, and it does not ensure manual review of processes.


Question 7

When do organizations begin realizing better results when following the Implementation Roadmap?



Answer : B

According to theImplementation Roadmaparticle on the Scaled Agile Framework website, organizations begin realizing better results when following the Implementation Roadmap as soon as the first Program Increment (PI). The article states that ''The first PI is a critical milestone. It's the first time the new ART delivers a fully integrated and tested increment of value. It's also the first time the ART demonstrates its new way of working to the enterprise and its stakeholders. The first PI is a big deal. It's a celebration of the new culture and the new way of working. It's also the first time the enterprise can see the benefits of the new approach.'' Therefore, the correct answer is B, as soon as the first Program Increment. The other options are not accurate, as the roadmap consists of more than just steps, training, or metrics. It is a continuous journey of learning and improvement.
