Bottom-up intelligence means inspecting and adapting progress at the point where skilled work is done, such that empirical evidence can be acted upon by development teams in the timeliest manner. Outcomes and indicators from validated learning may then be fed upwards to stakeholders.

Think of it as when management use the most recent evidence gathered by Scrum Teams.

PSMI Exam has a Nexus problem rate of about x%,

This is the principle of confidentiality of the exam, no one tells u,

u have to try it yourself, suggestions tried more open assessment

@Gongyuan, there are no Nexus questions on the PSM I exam.  There are core Scrum questions like how many Product Owners if you have multiple teams working on a single product, but that has nothing to do with Nexus it is core to Scrum same with impact of adding people or teams, that is again core logic, adding people or teams takes time to figure out how to work together and may impact ability to deliver, but again not related in any way to Nexus, just core work.

Hi All,

Re: Bottom-Up Intelligence

In estimating for a project, there is an estimating technique called Bottom-Up Estimating which means that we estimate at the lowest possible level where detail is known and the estimate accuracy level will therefore be high; as opposed to Top-Down estimating where we take a broader, higher level view of the project and predict, using perhaps historical information and other data, what the estimate should be. There are valid reasons for using either approach which I won't go into here.

If I relate this now to intelligence or knowledge about what's happening within our Scrum project, my take would be that Bottom-Up Intelligence is the information that's available at the point where the Development Team are actually doing the work, enabling them to self-organise as they see fit, inspecting and adapting as they go (Empiricism), to deliver a potentially releasable and valuable Done increment. This is as opposed to the way the Stakeholders/Product Owner/Scrum Master may think it should be done, which I guess could be called Top-Down Intelligence.
