It’s actually OK to be a Scrum Purist, and this is why!

Source: Merriam-Webster dictionary
  • Scrum is imperfect and incomplete by design. As documented in the Scrum Guide, the framework only describes what is minimally needed. How you make Scrum successful for your team is up to the self-managing ability of your team.
  • We should be applying “Bottom-Up Intelligence”. Don’t limit your team with your intelligence. Instead, find ways to utilise the brilliance of the entire group.
  • What works for one team doesn’t automatically mean that it will work for another. That is why the first value of the Agile Manifesto is about People & Interaction over Processes and Tools.
  • The rules in Scrum are there to create transparency so that you can inspect and adapt from it. For example, Scrum events are timeboxed because they provide focus and allow you to learn from them.
