Simplified Scrum Values

Successful use of (Simplified) Scrum depends on people becoming more proficient in living five values:

Committed, Focus, Openness, Respect, and Courage

All involved people, in and around the Simplified Scrum, commit to do their utmost best to achieve the best possible progress and impact, and to supporting each other. All involved are open about the work and the challenges. All involved respect each other to be capable, independent people, and are respected as such by the people with whom they work. All involved have the courage to do the right thing, to work on tough problems.

These values give direction to all involved with regard to their work, actions, and behavior. The decisions that are made, the steps taken, and the way Simplified Scrum is used should reinforce these values, not diminish or undermine them. All involved learn and explore the values as they work with the Simplified Scrum events and artifacts. When these values are embodied by all involved, the empirical pillars of transparency, inspection, and adaptation come to life building trust.
