How the Scrum Values direct your behavior during the Sprint Review - Back to the foundations of the Scrum framework (36)

February 3, 2022

You should expect the use of Scrum to become more successful when the Team lives the Values of commitment, courage, focus, openness and respect. Then empiricism starts to work and trust is being built.


👉 The more people become proficient in living the Scrum values, the more successful the use of Scrum will be.


Let's have a look what living the Scrum Values can bring to the Spint Review.

  • Commitment to achieve the Sprint Review’s expected outcome: an updated Product Backlog as a result of having collaborated during the event with the stakeholders.
  • Have the Courage to explicitly state what was not Done. What was planned for yet didn’t work out as expected. And learn from it.
  • Focus on the progress towards the Product Goal: where are we? What is the best next thing we can take on in the next Sprint?
  • Have the Openness to share the challenges you are facing with the stakeholders. They might have valuable feedback for you!
  • Respect the feedback of the stakeholders; really listen to them. How will they use the product? What other uses do they see in the market? What is slowing them down using the product?


These are only one example of how each Scrum Value could be lived during the Sprint Review - by the Scrum Team and the stakeholders present during the Sprint Review.



The Scrum Values are a guide for the Scrum Team AND stakeholders how to behave during the Sprint Review.

The more the team and the stakeholders become skilled in living the Scrum Values, the better the outcome of your Sprint Review will be.



Together with your Scrum Team, evaluate how the Scrum Values are lived during the Sprint Review.

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?


We hope you will find value in these short messages and if you are looking for more clarifications, feel free to take contact.
