Every Tuesday we'll give you three challenging Scrum Mastery questions. The following Monday I share the answers with you in a new blog post, or you can get the answers by adding your email to my mailing list in the Contacts section at the bottom of the page. If you are feeling courageous, add your answers in the comment section of this blog.
My advice is to read each question thoroughly, and time-box each question to four minutes. To challenge yourself, keep the Scrum Guide and other browser windows closed. Have fun with the quiz, I hope this helps you learn and to be a better Scrum Master!
This week our questions get harder. Are you ready?
A newly formed Scrum Team is meeting to decide how long their Sprint length should be. Which factors will they consider? Pick the two incorrect answers:
The length of time they can wait to get stakeholders feedback at the Sprint Review.
Consult and use the best practice guidelines determined by The Project Management Office (PMO).
The Scrum Guide states that Sprints should be a time-box of one month or less.
The level of risk with the technology they are using.
How long they can wait to get validated feedback from customers.
How many artifacts are there in Scrum, and what are they called? Choose the one correct answer:
There are 3 artifacts: Product Backlog, Sprint Backlog and Sprint Burn-down Chart.
There are 3 artifacts: Product Backlog, Sprint Backlog and Increment.
There are 3 artifacts: Backlog, Increment and Release Burn-down Chart.

Scrum works best when dates and scope are fixed up front, and as long as change is not allowed by the Product Owner.
