👉 The more people become proficient in living the Scrum values, the more successful the use of Scrum will be.
When the Scrum values are embodied by the Scrum Team and the people they work with, the empirical Scrum pillars come to life, building trust.
Reminder: the Scrum Values are Commitment, Focus, Openness, Respect, and Courage.
Let's have a look what living the Scrum Values can bring to the Daily Scrum.
Commitment to achieve the Daily Scrum’s expected outcome: produce an actionable plan for the next day of work, bringing the team closer to the Sprint Goal.
Have the Courage to quickly take decisions that are needed and within the team’s mandate, based on the available information.
Focus on the progress towards the Sprint Goal: where are we? What is the best next thing we can do today?
By having the Openness to put impediments on the table and ask for support; what is really blocking us that we cannot do something about ourselves?
Respect the insights of each Team member to have the most realistic view possible about the progress to date.
These are only one example of how each Scrum Value could be lived during the Daily Scrum.
The Scrum Values are a guide for the Scrum Team how to behave during the Daily Scrum.
The more the team becomes skilled in living the Scrum Values, the better the outcome of your Daily Scrum will be.
Together with your Scrum Team, evaluate how the Scrum Values are lived during the Daily Scrum.
How do you see that the values of Commitment, Courage, Focus, Openness and Respect are lived? What can you do to make the Scrum Team live these even better?
