The Scrum guide has had a makeover. Well it has had a small but powerful addition – values.
Scrum values have been around for a while. They are now officially part of the Scrum Guide following on from an overwhelming demand to add these.
Here is a quick run through of what these are:
Commitment – People personally commit to achieving the goals of the Scrum Team
Courage – The Scrum Team members have courage to do the right thing and work on tough problems
Focus – Everyone focuses on the work of the Sprint and the goals of the Scrum Team
Openness – The Scrum Team and its stakeholders agree to be open about all the work and the challenges with performing the work
Respect – Scrum Team members respect each other to be capable, independent people
