The Four "Meta-Questions" Behind All Scrum.org Scrum Assessment Questions

EPIPHANY

I might have had an epiphany as I was teaching one of my recent classes. OK, maybe two.

  1. All Scrum.org Scrum assessment questions have a question behind the question.
  2. All questions behind the question are really one of four "meta-questions" 

THE FOUR "META-QUESTIONS"

OK, so here is my perspective about the four "meta-questions"...

  1. SCRUM GUIDE: Which option(s) is(are) correct based on what is a legal move in Scrum as per the Scrum Guide. What is true based on what the Scrum Guide says is mandatory or prohibited in Scrum from the lenses of Roles, Events and Artifacts?
  2. EMPIRICISM: Which option(s) might be the most consistent with empirical management of value, waste and risk?
  3. SELF-MANAGEMENT: Which option(s) might be the most consistent with enabling self-managing teams?
  4. SCRUM VALUES: Which option(s) might be the most consistent with embodying Scum Values?

THOUGHTS

This is just my perspective. I would love to learn from yours. What do you think?

PS: All generalizations are wrong, including this statement and the central idea of this blog :)
