Change the short definition of Scrum in the guide to tell the reader what Scrum is, not its benefits
The beginning of the guide currently reads "Scrum is a framework within which people can address complex adaptive problems, while productively and creatively delivering products of the highest possible value."
This tells me the benefits of Scrum, not what Scrum is, and thus is less meaningful. I would propose changing it to:
"Scrum is a framework where products are developed by a self-organizing team, in multiple fixed-length sprints, in full collaboration with a product owner, using Agile values and principles throughout."

IMHO "Scrum is a framework" is clear; any other phrase (within, where, etc.) attached to that is additive and not definitive.
