Re: Factors for accepting and rejecting the stories / Sprint

PO accepts it when he finds acceptance cafeterias are met along with DOD . Many time stories get rejected when acceptance cafeterias are not interpreted by PO and team in same way . for that continues interaction among PO and team is needed.

Re: Request to review points for CSP application

No issue, you can report based on what all is already completed or read. I would recommend that you apply for CSP as soon you can since we are hearing the Scrum Alliance might change the CSP program in next two months, so do it soon.

Re: Regarding Velocity

No rule for this in general but since we are doing estimate and it make some sense to keep some contingency reserves we should say 4, since even if we do with planned velocity we will not finish it in 3 iterations.

I understand sometime this becomes tricky in PMI-ACP exam.
