We love the new Scrum Guide.
To sum up, here are the most significant changes of the new Scrum guide:
1. Now it would be much easier to present it to non-IT teams,
2. The Scrum Master! Finally, we have a true leader who helps the team move together towards the same goals. And all the misunderstandings related to this role are gone. Congrats, dear Scrum Masters! This is a significant change.
3. Now, we align with the product goal and sprint goals, which we do in real life, but now it is official.
4. Value is what matters. It is more emphasized here.
5. No more workarounds within the team related to self-organization like " we do it the way we want, we are self-organized." The idea behind this has always been the "self-managing," but the word was misused often.
6. Shared responsibilities and commitments within the whole Scrum Team! Now it is more clear what commitment and focus mean.
7. The guide became more Agile now, I think. It fully represents what we have achieved through many experiments and relying on Agile Values and Principles and Lean thinking.
What are your thoughts on this?
