The Audio Version of the Scrum Guide 2020 Is Available
TL; DR: Download the Scrum Guide 2020 Reordered Audiobook
Update 2021-03-04: I just learned that the available audiobook is about the Scrum Guide 2020, not the Scrum Guide 2020 Reordered. 🤦♂️ While the available audiobook is a precious resource, I will provide the intended file as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience!
Like the Scrum Guide 2020 Reordered, its audiobook version is based on about 95 percent of the text of the Scrum Guide 2020, extending its original structure by adding additional categories, for example, on self-management, commitments, or accountability. The audiobook of the Scrum Guide 2020 Reordered is a 22-minute long MP3 file. We are planning to make it available on other platforms, too.
The audio version of the SG 2020 Reordered allows you to get a first understanding of Scrum-related questions in a convenient manner—by listening to the content. For example, SG 2020 Reordered audiobook is good at relating specific topics—say “stakeholder”—with Scrum first principles such as Scrum Values, or empiricism.

The Background of the Scrum Guide 2020 Reordered
The Scrum Guide Reordered resulted from my preparation to pass Scrum.org’s Professional Scrum Master III certification on my path to becoming a Professional Scrum Trainer (PST).
While the Scrum Guide 2020 Reordered does not answer all questions you might have immediately, I found it very helpful to identify the patterns and principles used throughout the Scrum Guide. Moreover, it is a great tool to start meaningful discussions with your peers.
