  • A. Remind the Product Owner that his primary concern is the flow of value reflected in the ordering of the Product Backlog.
  • B. Tell the Product Owner to re-order the Product Backlog so the work involving the external component can be planned in a separate sprint.

The best advice for the Product Owner in this situation is A "to remind the Product Owner that his primary concern is the flow of value reflected in the ordering of the Product Backlog." This is because the Product Backlog is an emergent, ordered list of what is needed to improve the product, and it is the single source of work undertaken by the Scrum Team. https://www.scrum.org/resources/what-is-a-product-backlog The Product Owner should order the Product Backlog in any way they think will maximize the value of the product, taking into account various factors such as business value, risk, return on investment (ROI), dependencies and impact. https://www.scrum.org/resources/what-is-a-product-backlog Therefore, option A is the correct answer. Option B and C are incorrect, as they suggest that the Product Owner should compromise the value of the product for other factors.

Based on the Scrum Guide, the answer to this question is: B. Tell the Product Owner to re-order the Product Backlog so the work involving the external component can be planned in a separate sprint. In Scrum, the Product Owner is responsible for prioritizing the Product Backlog to maximize the value delivered in each Sprint. If the team is waiting for an external supplier to deliver a component and there won't be enough work in the next Sprint to occupy the full team without that component, it makes sense to reorder the backlog so that work not dependent on the external component can be planned for the next Sprint. This ensures that the team can remain productive and focused on delivering value even if they are temporarily waiting for an external dependency to be met.

The answer is A, the scrum master gives advices not orders, so he cannot "Tell the product owner do something, he advises..."

En tant que Scrum Master, le conseil le plus appropri√© serait le suivant : B. Dites au Product Owner de r√©organiser le Product Backlog afin que le travail impliquant le composant externe puisse √™tre planifi√© dans un sprint s√©par√©. Explication : L'objectif principal du Product Owner est de maximiser la valeur d√©livr√©e au client et aux utilisateurs. Dans ce sc√©nario, la situation o√Ļ un composant externe est attendu et n√©cessaire pour occuper l'√©quipe de d√©veloppement peut √™tre g√©r√©e en planifiant le travail de mani√®re appropri√©e. En s√©parant le travail li√© au composant externe dans un sprint distinct, le Product Owner peut s'assurer que le reste du Product Backlog est ordonnanc√© pour maximiser la valeur ajout√©e √† chaque sprint.
