#40 – The Scrum Values

In July of 2016, Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland included the five Scrum Values Courage, Focus, Commitment, Respect and Openness in the Scrum Guide. The idea is that, when the Scrum team lives by these values, the Scrum pillars of transparency, inspection and adaptation will be facilitated and come to life. Therefore, we can see these values as guiding principles that help a team and organization adopt Scrum.
