    • Agile for individual work

      The Guidebook says the agile framework is effective for appropriate number of team members, but I think the principle, such as putting emphasis on transparency or priority, also will be effective for the tiny team or even for the person working individually.

      • Review paragraph on Inspection (page 4)

        " Scrum users must frequently inspect Scrum artifacts and progress toward a Sprint Goal to detect undesirable variances. Their inspection should not be so frequent that inspection gets in the way of the work. Inspections are most beneficial when diligently performed by skilled inspectors at the point of work."

        (1) Who are the Scrum *users*? This isn't defined in the guide. This is the only occurrence of the word "users" in the Scrum Guide. Shouldn't be changed to Scrum Teams?

        (2) "inspect Scrum artifacts and progress toward a Sprint Goal..." seems insufficient. How about processes, practices, interactions, etc? Shouldn't be…

              • List the techniques are used in Scrum by the scrum team (for eg techniques used in arranging the product back log)

                If this includes the tools and techniques used by the scrum master and product owner will be helpful.

                • Clarify chronology of events

                  In the English language version of 2017 Guide, it is unclear if there is an intended order to the four events and, if so, what that order is. Can Sprint Planning happen at the end of the Sprint for an upcoming Sprint or should it happen at the beginning for the current Sprint? Or is either acceptable within Scrum's framework? The intent/rule for event order needs clarified.

                  In most places that describe Sprint Planning, the Guide says it is done for "the Sprint" which presumably means the current Sprint and implies Sprint Planning is the first of the four events…

                    • Add Goal? to the first sentence (a.), it is a typo.

                      a.What did I do yesterday that helped the Development Team meet the Sprint
                      b.What will I do today to help the Development Team meet the Sprint Goal?
                      c.Do I see any impediment that prevents me or the Development Team from meeting the Sprint Goal?

                      • Can you please have a separate section for Scrum Master role and responsibility? Other than facilitating what are other responsibilities.

                        Is Scrum master just facilitating and coaching. Just like project manager has bigger role in PMP methodology. Can you clarify Scrum master role. I don't see much value given in scrum world.

                        • to correct the faulty Sprint Goal's objective set description

                          At Section "Sprint Goal" of Scrum Guide, correct the 1st sentence:
                          "...through the implementation of Product Backlog." faulty
                          "...through the implementation of Sprint Backlog." correct

                          • elaborate on risks of applying a "Ready" state

                            applying the "Ready" state brings a strong risk of entering a Contract Game between Dev Team and stakeholders.
                            a "Definition of Ready" accelerates the risk.
                            some sort of "footnote" might help people to understand this and avoid entering into the trap.

                            • Tighten up "Helping the Development Team to create high-value products;"

                              "Helping the Development Team to create high-value products;" is a phrase ascribed as a task for the SM. It seems a bit vague in it's context. If what you mean is that the SM does this when he encourages and teaches all the Scrum rules, then I understand. But in it's current context it seems like another action to perform but an action that isn't really defined.

                                  It would be extremely useful to post some tips on how to successfully implement Scrum on data mining/analytics projects, particularly for those that follow a data mining framework like CRISP-DM.

                                  • change the name and content of the "Sprint Backlog" as it is not the same sort of thing as the "Product Backlog"

                                    As someone new to Scrum I find the naming of the Sprint Backlog is very confusing.

                                    Comparing it to the Product Backlog, I initially expected it to consist of a list of Sprint Backlog items: i.e. Product Backlog Items which were to be "done" during the Sprint.

                                    However it also contains the plan for delivering the Product Increment and realising the Sprint Goal. This does not seem to be reflected in the word "Backlog" at all.

                                    There is also the SPRINT GOAL which is an important part of the Sprint, but is NOT included in the Sprint Backlog. In fact…

                                    • You don't turn the Product Backlog into Increments, but the items on the Product Backlog

                                      On pag 7, at the first bullet of the paragraph "The Development Team" the text says "...how to turn Product Backlog into Increments...".
                                      I suggest the word "items" is added to the text. So then it would be "...how to turn Product Backlog items into Increments..."

                                      Paragraph "Product Backlog" teaches us that "The Product Backlog is an ordered list of everything that is known to be needed in the product." So the Product Backlog is a list with items, and the items are turned into the increment. The list itself is not turned into an increment, but remains a list.

                                      • Remove process discussion from Sprint Review

                                        The Scrum Guide contains a long list of topics that should be addressed in the Sprint Review. One of them is: "The Development Team discusses what went well during the Sprint what problems it ran into, and how those problems were solved". This should be done in the Retrospective.

                                        • Advocate smaller and more frequent retrospectives, to ephasize the value of continuous improvemenent

                                          In dysfunctional teams, a strong emphasis is placed on the daily stand-up, because it is a window through which management can micromanage. There is a tendency to plan to full capacity, with no slack, a tendency to apply pressure to the team to deliver, and hence a tendency for the team to fall behind. In many teams, to "save time", the retrospective is held infrequently or dropped, or has no useful outcome because problems are able to go unchecked and grow, becoming harder to get traction on solving.

                                          If scrum were to advocate making retrospectives smaller, and more frequent, it…
