There is more to Scrum than rules, roles, practices and principles. Scrum, actually, is even more about behavior than it is about process. Values drive behavior. The framework of Scrum is based upon as well as expressed through five core values: commitment, focus, openness, respect and courage.
Although these values were not invented as a part of Scrum, and are not exclusive to Scrum, they do give direction to the work, behavior and actions in Scrum. In a Scrum context, our decisions, the steps we take, the way we play the game, the practices we include and the activities we undertake within Scrum should all re-enforce these values, not diminish or undermine them. That requires understanding these values, and the associated behaviours, against the background of people, complexity and empiricism.
Gunther Verheyen, independent Scrum Caretaker, does not aspire teaching values. In this interactive workshop, he will collaboratively explore with you the value in the Scrum Values in a context of…Scrum. The workshop will include a few selected cases from “The Scrum Caretaker Book of Exercises”.

What to expect in an online setting?
Our online workshops and classes are very much case-driven with plenty of room for interaction and conversation. We keep them as low-tech as possible:
- We will connect on Zoom and use Zoom break-out rooms for discussions in smaller teams.
- We will use Google Jamboard in a virtual team space on Google drive.
- The workshop facilitator might occasionally use a PowerPoint slide deck and a physical flip chart.
