  1. Sentence in Scrum Guide requires multiple increments for each Sprint

    "The purpose of each Sprint is to deliver Increments of potentially releasable functionality that adhere to the Scrum Team’s current definition of “Done.” "

    Suggest instead:
    "The purpose of each Sprint is to deliver **one or more** Increments of potentially releasable functionality that adhere to the Scrum Team’s current definition of “Done.”

  2. Add Scrum Team pattern(s) for successful scaling

    In an ideal world, a team owns it dependencies. As a larger organization adopts Scrum and leverages across a complex product / services environment where many products are leveraging 10's to 100's of services, describe pattern(s) for how teams can effectively organize to ensure their service can scale to meet the need of its users. We have some complex services that require many Scrum teams to deliver the service. Complicating matters, there are many products consuming this service and the service teams delivering the service are always a bottleneck. We've tried various patterns and have one that works now, but…

  3. appoint successors for Ken and Jeff, who should further adapt the Scrum Guide

    I know it's a creepy thought, but we all know life is short, and all sorts of things can happen.

    In the future those people who will be new to Scrum, will find it reassuring to know that the responsibility for further advancing the Scrum Guide was granted jointly and personally by both Jeff and Ken to certain individuals, who will be the new Scrum Leaders in the absence of the founding fathers.

    In other words, putting Ken' and Jeff's successors name in the Scrum Guide will make it clear who picks up the torch and takes Scrum further.

    What a creepy thought. Jeff and I are in top health and plan on living another forty years.
    Maybe we’ll look into this in 20 years.

  4. Make clear that Scrum promotes a sustainable development

    The iterations in Scrum are named "Sprints". I think this can lead to the false assumption that the developers are supposed to work as fast as they can and exhaust themselves during a sprint.
    In real life, when I'm doing a "sprint", I'm normally running as fast as I can. This is okay for a single sprint, but doing this for a couple of sprints it would lead to my physical breakdown very fast.

    Maybe you can add something like this:
    "In a sprint the development team works with a pace that they can sustain indefinitely over multiple sprints."

  5. Clarify whether the ScrumMaster is active in development or not

    Conflicting opinions have been expressed (both in our team and in Scrum Alliance articles) as to whether the ScrumMaster is also active in development (e.g. in writing code). It would be useful to have a clear answer (yes, no, unspecified) so that we can stop discussing what Scrum is and get down to whether it is true-Scrum that we want or something resembling it.

  6. Correct user guide?

    In the guide, under "Scrum events" it says "Once a Sprint begins, its duration is fixed and cannot be shortened or lengthened. The remaining events may end whenever the purpose of the event is achieved, ensuring an appropriate amount of time is spent without allowing waste in the process."
    I believe it should say "whenever the purpose of the sprint is achieved". Should this be corrected?

  7. All Scrum Team members should be allowed to answer in the Daily Scrum

    Near the end of the "Daily Scrum" sections it says: "The Scrum Master enforces the rule that only Development Team members participate in the Daily Scrum."

    This implies that the PO and the SM can NOT be transparent (in the DS) about what they did, and what problems they had.

    This implies (to many) that the Doers are giving a status update to the PO and SM.

    It is better for overall Team chemistry that the PO and SM are also transparent.

    It is also necessary that they ALL realize that only when all pull together will they have the…

  9. Rename Sprint Review to Product Review

    The Sprint cadence happen to be the frequency of this event in Scrum, but the main thing to inspect, isn't that the Product? What's in there (the increment)? What's out there?

    The current name, Sprint Review, may indicate that the Sprint that's almost at an end, and the work performed in that Sprint, is the primary focus of this event. I'm suggesting that's the wrong focus - the thing we're really focusing on is the product, how it's doing and what we want to do with it.

  10. Prescribe a productivity model that is not just Velocity or Story Point based but focused on timely delivery of tasks *within* the Sprint.

    That is, give priirity to delivering tasks as per estimate over tasks delivered per Sprint as measure of high productivity.

  11. Short version of Scrum Guide. 5 pages, not 17. It can be printed on every wall, even memorized.

    Current version of Scrum Guide is perfect. But we can additionaly create short version. It can fit in 5 pages I bielive. Then it can be printed on wall of every scrum room (we can even send a nice printed copy for free) in the world. And 2nd benefit - it can be memorized by every Scrum master.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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…
