Velocity is the sum of the estimates of delivered  per iteration.
Title: Re: Agile-Scrum Interview Questions
Post by: 1182053501 on February 15, 2018, 10:30:21 am
Velocity of Agile will be determined basing on the user stories done during the sprint meetings and the average work done during 2 to 3 sprints will be considered.

Velocity is a metric that is calculated by addition of all efforts estimates associated with user stories
completed in one iteration. It predicts how much work Agile can complete in a sprint and how much
time will it require to complete a project.

Velocity is a metric that is used to determine the amount of work that can be successfully completed by a team during a sprint. The team would add up the effort estimation associated with every user story that was completed within the said sprint and come up with a total, this total is the velocity. This would serve as an accurate estimation technique to determine the time that would take for the project to be completed.

The rate of progress of scrum team is called Velocity. It expresses the amount of story points completed per iteration.

An important rule of calculating velocity is that only stories that are completed at the end of iteration are counted.

1) What is the Daily Stand-Up?
One of the interview questions on Agile is sure to be about the Daily Stand-Up. The answer? Every day, preferably in the morning, the team meets for no more than 15 minutes to answer three questions:

What did you do yesterday?
What do you plan on doing today?
Are there any blocks or impediments that keep you from doing your work?

This Scrum ceremony is not meant to be a status meeting for stakeholders, but a way to energize the team and get them to set focus for the day.

2) Describe what happens in the Sprint planning meeting.
In Sprint planning, the Product Owner presents the goal of the sprint and discusses the high priority product backlog items. The Delivery team then chooses the amount of work for the next sprint.

•   Agile is a methodology and scrum is a framework has set of values and principles.
•   Scrum is now widely used for products, services and managing the operation of organizations
•   The individual team is highly flexible and adaptive
•   This delivers working software in a regular intervals to client
•    welcoming changing requirements
•   whole agile team has responsibilities working towards the client solutions

There is no specific example for explaining agile nowadays it is implemented across all industry verticals where solution needs to arrive soon or fix issues or customer acquisition new markets etc…

What are the different types of scrum meetings?
The sprint planning meeting is held before the sprint begins, to define what will be delivered in the sprint.
The Scrum Daily Standup Meeting is held daily. This meeting is short, fifteen minutes or less. And each member of the team tells the rest of the team what they did since the last Scrum meeting, what they will do before the next Scrum meeting, and what is blocking them.
The Sprint Retrospective Meeting is held after the sprint, for the Scrum team to reflect and review on the last sprint to determine what went right and wrong, and initiate process improvement.
The Backlog Grooming Meeting is often held during the sprint to allow the team to review the top priority items in the product backlog.
The Sprint Review Meeting is held at the end of each sprint and time-boxed to four hours. In the meeting, the work the team completed in the sprint is demonstrated as a product increment – potentially shippable working software.
The Scrum of Scrums is for information about the team as a whole, not individual members. The members work on identified issues.

Explain Velocity in Agile?
Velocity is how much work of the product backlogs a team can handle in one sprint. Points should be considered:
Team size
Project complexity.
Interruptions and multitasking of team resource.
Sprint duration.
Can’t compare velocity to other team capacity.
Title: Re: Agile-Scrum Interview Questions
Post by: 1182198007 on December 05, 2018, 12:06:51 am
Velocity is a metric that predicts how much work an Agile software development team can successfully complete within a two-week sprint (or similar time-boxed period).

Velocity is a useful planning tool for estimating how fast work can be completed and how long it will take to complete a project. The metric is calculated by reviewing work the team successfully completed during previous sprints; for example, if the team completed 10 stories during a two-week sprint and each story was worth 3 story points, then the team's velocity is 30 story points per sprint.

What is Agile ?
Agile methodology is a practice that helps continuous iteration of development and testing in the SDLC process. Agile breaks the product into smaller builds.

In this methodology, development and testing activities are concurrent, unlike other software development methodologies. It also encourages teamwork and face-to-face communication. Business, stakeholders, and developers and clients must work together to develop a product.

What is Scrum ?
Agile is a framework and there are various approaches to implement agile like Scrum, Kanban, Extreme Programming(XP),Feature Driven Development(FDD), Adaptive System Development(ASD) etc.,

Scrum
It’s one of the most popular ways to implement agile. In this iterative approach, there are sprints that last one to two weeks and allow the team to deliver software on regular basis. Scrum uses a software model that follows a set of roles, responsibilities, and meetings.

Agile and Scrum Process.........

Agile Process: Agile means light that means it is very easy to maintain. Agile process is used to Responding to changes and faster delivery. In Agile no comprehensive documentation is required. Using with Agile we can maintain interaction and collaboration with customers.
Main Values:
1) Individuals and Interactions over tools and processes
2) Working software over comprehensive documentation
3) Customer collaboration
4) Responding to change over following a plan
Principles of Agile Software:
 1) Satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of variable software
2) Welcome changing requirements, even late in development.
3) The Most effective and efficient method of conveying information
4) Agile process promote sustainable development
5) The best architectures, requirements and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.


Scrum Process: Scrum process used when project is falling behind the schedule. It is used to get the project on Fast Track and reach the specified project delivery time. Here Scrum master admin the Project with the help of scrum team, Technical team and BA’s, scrum master resolve issues and gets the allocated work done in sprints.



Scrum Team: Project resources are grouped as Scrum teams which comprises of BA’s, Developers and Testers.

Product Owner: He will decide what needs to be in the product and will be responsible for how the product has to be.

Scrum Master: He will monitor the performance of the team within the sprint. Team will raise all their issues to scrum master and he will run to look for answers.

An agile project needs a way to ensure that things are on track and that the team is following the agile method. Burndown charts are an easy and important way to do this.
The purpose of these chart is to show how much work the team has completed over time.
On the far right of the chart, there’s the finish date.
The team should complete the work and zero in on the final date.
The chart should burn down to the due date.

Velocity = Sum of complexity points  of any Sprint user stories.

Example.
 Sprint 1= 10 user stories
each user story complexity point is 10
 Then the sprint 1 velocity is= 10+10+10+10+10+10+10+10+10+10= 100.

Post by: 1200160509 on May 06, 2021, 10:35:03 pm
Velocity in Agile is a simple calculation measuring units of work completed in a given timeframe. Units of work can be measured in several ways, including engineer hours, user stories, or story points.

For example, to track Agile velocity, most Scrum teams measure the number of user points in a given sprint. Once this is measured based on a few sprints, the team can then predict how many user points they should plan to complete per sprint. This ultimately reveals how many sprints it will take to complete a project, and helps the team to measure efficiency along the way.

1.   What is the duration of a scrum sprint?
Answer: Generally, the duration of a scrum sprint (scrum cycle) depends upon the size of project and team working on it. The team size may vary from 3-9 members. In general, a scrum script complete in 3-4 weeks. Thus, on an average, the duration of a scrum sprint (scrum cycle) is 4 weeks. This type of sprint-based agile scrum interview questions is very common in an agile or scrum master interview.
2. What is Velocity?
Answer: Velocity question is generally posed to understand if you have done some real work and familiar with the term. Its definition ?Velocity is the rate at which team progresses print by sprint? should be enough. You can also add saying the important feature of velocity that it can?t be compared to two different scrum teams.
3. What do you know about impediments in Scrum? Give some examples of impediments.
Answer: Impediments are the obstacles or issues faced by scrum team which slow down their speed of work. If something is trying to block the scrum team from their getting work ?Done? then it is an impediment. Impediments can come in any form. Some of the impediments are given as ?
?   Resource missing or sick team member
?   Technical, operational, organizational problems
?   Lack of management supportive system
?   Business problems
?   External issues such as weather, war etc
?   Lack of skill or knowledge
While answering impediments related agile scrum interview questions remember that you may be asked the way to remove any of the mentioned impediment.
4. What is the difference and similarity between Agile and Scrum?
Answer: Difference between Agile and Scrum ? Agile is a broad spectrum, it is a methodology used for project management while Scrum is just a form of the Agile that describes the process and its steps more concisely. Agile is a practice whereas scrum is a procedure to pursue this practice.
The similarity between Agile and Scrum ? The Agile involves completing projects in steps or incrementally. The Agile methodology is considered to be iterative in nature. Being a form of Agile, Scrum is same as that of the Agile. It is also incremental and iterative.
5. What is the increment? Explain.
Answer: This is one of the commonly asked agile scrum interview questions and a quick answer can be given this way. An increment is the total of all the product backlogs items completed during a sprint. Each increment includes all the previous sprint increment values as it is cumulative. It must be in the available mode in the subsequent release as it is a step to reach your goal

Post by: 12117115307 on October 04, 2021, 11:27:02 am
Velocity in agile is a simple calculation of number of hours spent to complete a given work. This can be measured in engineer hours, story points and is generally tracked in a tool like jira.
Ex: In a sprint, if there are 3 user stories and each story equals to 4 story points and your team has completed only 1 user story, then the total story points will be equal to 4 story points.
In the same way lets consider another 2 sprints where story points are 10 and 6 respectively.
Here, the average sprint velocity will be (4+10+6)/3 =  6.5
