Scrum Values

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
