Examples; 10 of the 910 standard requirements:

  1. Scrums productivity stems from doing the right things first and doing those things very effectively. The product owner queues up the right work by prioritizing the product backlog. How does the team maximize its productivity, though?

  2. Every day, does the team get together for a 15-minute meeting called a Daily Scrum and answers three questions: What have you done on this project since the last Daily Scrum meeting?

  3. Could any requirements (especilly those near the top of the Product Backlog) be better expressed as independent, negotiable, valuable, estimable, small, and testable user stories1?

  4. How do you reconcile the need for a long-term product plan with the reality of a constantly changing market, especially when you use an agile approach like scrum?

  5. If the project is using Agile Development or Agile Acquisition, how many staff on the Scrum Team are identified as testers?

  6. What are the differences in responsibility between a Project Manager and a Scrum Master (Team Leader) in an Agile project?

  7. Is there a high level of maturity and experience with agile-scrum project management, solution development and delivery?

  8. Is it possible to integrate CMMI and agile practices like Scrum to achieve the benefits from both - or even more?

  9. Should you provide Scrum training to senior management, including the people in the Program Management office?

  10. What are the pros and cons of the waterfall and agile scrum project management approach for your organization?
