    Hello,

    From the open assessment:

    The purpose of a Sprint is to have a working increment of software done by the Sprint Review.

    Correct answer: A)
    You chose: A)

    Correct answer
    A)
    True

    B)
    False
    Points: 1 out of 1


    From the Scrum Guide:
    The heart of Scrum is a Sprint, a time-box of one month or less during which a “Done”, useable, and potentially releasable product Increment is created.


    Is then Scrum a software-only framework? I'd argue that the actual answer to the question should be "False" as there can be working increments of any product, not just software.

    Good catch I think, the question should refer to a working product increment

    Indeed, the devil is in the details. I would also agree that correct formulation should be "working product" not "working software (product)".

    Hi,

    The context of the assessment is software product as the assessment is made by Scrum.org and Scrum.org is mainly focused with Scrum for software development.

    Do you think this is also true for the PSM assessments? (I'm about to attempt one, being wrong about this may cost a few points)

    The question has been updated. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Still, a little side note. The Scrum framework as we teach and promote it is optimized for software development. The empirical essence and Scrum principles are obviously applicable for any complex product development. Yet, our Scrum.org mission is "Improving the profession of software development" and software development is our domain of expertise.

    Oh, ok, thanks then!

    Sorry about the nitpicking, it's just that knowing these tiny nuances will matter during assessment.

    Best regards,
