Scrum values acronym - C-FORCE
In my training on agile and scrum fundamentals, I usually put the values of scrum in this acronym - C-FORCE (Commitment above all, Focus, Openness, Respect, Courage, and with due respect to Ken and Jeff, I added Ethics on my own for my teams).
Ethics is very important for teams that need to stick together and trust each other to self-organize and put team goals above all else.
I have seen teams with an ethics deficit disintegrate very fast as it starts impacting and attacking every other value listed in scrum guide.
Commitment, Focus, Openness, Respect, Courage are all attributes that matter and can be detected in their presence or absence.
Ethics is a matter of philosophy. Pretty soon we are into questioning what type of ethics are implied:
“The choice between consequentialist and Kantian ethics is a difficult one, as there are many examples which are challenging to each sort of view. … According to the Kantian, what are really good or bad are not the consequences of our actions, but the actions themselves. So consider some bad actions, like acts of lying.”

Adding Ethics to Scrum Values is what this idea is all about.
