    Thanks,

    I do not have a template. But I do have some suggestions. Keep it brief and to the point. Focus on what YOU did. For example: "The project was to deliver a IT service management product. We followed the Scrum method and used 2 week iterations. I played the Scrum master role and coached the team to make the transition to the Scrum method.".

    Mike's book is pretty good. Just make sure you get the latest edition which is updated for changes to the exam that came into force in 2018. I would also suggest supplement the book with any other area that you find needs to be worked on. For example, if you haven't worked on Lean and Kanban methods, you may want to read the relevant books from the PMI list of references.

    Hi Sandeep,

    I am working on class project, on JIRA trial version (7 Days), and encountering following issues :

    1. No way to record completed story points during sprint

    2. Release, Versions and Burn Down chart feature not available in trial version
    Not sure, if others have the same problem.

    Thanks,
    Bilal

    Hi Bilal,

    It should have those options in trial version. Also there is no point of completed Story Points. Once you specify Story Points, it remains to be that until the story is marked as Done. You can estimate and log actual hours. But story points once specified stay that way for the entire sprint.

    The idea is as the team becomes better the weight carried by a story point becomes lighter, means you can deliver more story points.

    E.g. a medium complexity task becomes Low complexity after some sprints. So a 5 story point story becomes 3 story points after gaining knowldge and expertise over multiple iterations. So you can have more stories accomodated in sprint and thus velocity (total Story Points delivered in sprints) remains constant or becomes better (higher) in coming sprints.

    Hi Sandeep, My application has been selected for audit. Can I have evidence of 28 contact hours to be submitted to PMI to clear the audit ? Whom should I reach out for more details ?
