Q

STUDY TOPIC:

What is a FAB Matrix?

A

Features and Benefits Matrix.

columns:
* Feature – A short phrase giving a name and context
* Benefit hypothesis – The proposed measurable benefit to the end user or business

Avoid defining features with the ‘user story voice’ format that’s designed to support one user role; features typically provide functionality for multiple user roles. Using the same method to describe user stories and features may confuse the business, especially since they are not normally familiar with stories.

Q

STUDY TOPIC:

Name the Nine SAFe Lean-Agile Principles

A
#1 – Take an economic view 
#2 – Apply systems thinking 
#3 – Assume variability; preserve options 
#4 – Build incrementally with fast, integrated learning cycles 
#5 – Base milestones on objective evaluation of working systems 
#6 – Visualize and limit WIP, reduce batch sizes, and manage queue lengths
#7 – Apply cadence, synchronize with cross-domain planning 
#8 – Unlock the intrinsic motivation of knowledge workers 
#9 – Decentralize decision-making

mnemonic:
1 run = horse turns it’s head around to look at bags of money on it’s back
2 zoo = a system of 2 monkeys passing a ball, thinking about each toss
3 tree = xmas tree covered over with a variety of flavors of preserves as ornaments bought on sale, on xmas eve
4 door = each revolution of revolving door is an increment of an integrated learning cycle, counted with a small chalkboard
5 hive = bees have large eyes and are evaluating a working system (the hive) objectively, they are producing milestones of honey
6 sick = WIP is the amount of throwup that fits in a hospital paper cup
7 heaven = a chorus of dancers on lighted steps, synchronized to a cadence, with a domain of pink-outfitted dancers choreographed (planned) to cross into a domain of purple-outfitted dancers
8 gate = the railroad gate unlocks and pops up when a car full of intrinsically motivated brains arrives, on their way to work (knowledge workers)
9 wine = instead of one mountaineer with a big jug of XXX wine asleep under a tree, it is a band metrosexual mountaineers skipping through the hills, with many individual goblets of artisanal wines, all making slightly inebriated decisions
