Running Scrum outside the boundaries of Scrum guide
It is fair to assume that the vast majority of Scrum practitioners, those in commercial firms in particular, are exercising Scrum which does not fit into Scrum guide provisions.
Majority of posts at this very forum, not to talk about Scrum related social media prove this...
In general most, if not everyone who is running Scrum project today are actually "Changing the core design or ideas of Scrum, leaving out elements, or not following the rules of Scrum"(quote from Scrum guide), but still many of them are able to yield profits and otherwise increase value
Moreover, I have met managers who deliberately breach the provisions of the Scrum guide to keep up profits or successful team operations. I can provide examples
Could be its a high time to start collecting the feedback from Scrum practitioners and test actual Scrum guide against own core values, Transparency, Inspection and Adaptation?
Transparency allows us to establish that many people are willing to do Scrum, but are unwilling to do it according to the strict provisions of the Scrum guide
Inspection will allow us to establish if "Changing the core design or ideas of Scrum, leaving out elements, or not following the rules of Scrum" actually covers up problems and limits the benefits of Scrum, potentially even rendering it useless." or may create an interesting, more profitable and productive way of producing value.
Adaptation will allow new updates to Scrum guide based on this feedback, or may be will render Scrum Guide and all its provisions useless?
After all, Scrum existed from 1995 until 2009 without any Guide or set of rules, just as a system of thought without any guiding rules?
