The 2020 version of the Scrum Guide has been released (https://www.scrumguides.org) and it introduces some subtle, but impactful changes. This update to the document that explains the Scrum Framework as it is defined by Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland, was introduced during a live event celebrating the 25th anniversary of Scrum. If you’d like to check out a replay of the event, you’ll find a link below.
There are a number of changes in the new version, some of these are very positive and should help it extend its reach to those who still felt it was too software-centric. There are also some changes that might open the door for some concerning behavior.
In this podcast, I am joined by Certified Scrum Trainer, Eric Tucker. During the interview we explore some of the changes to the guide and try to offer insight into how these may help teams adopt Scrum and also some things to watch out for.
