After two years of working closely with the agile and Scrum community, the originators of Scrum, Ken Schwaber and Jeff Sutherland, have today announced the next series of updates to Scrum through the (2013) Scrum Guide, the definitive Scrum rule book and documentation of Scrum itself.
Ken and Jeff have have incorporated a handful of refinements into Scrum’s new version. While nothing about Scrum is fundamentally changed, some clarifications are made to strengthen the importance of transparency, value, goals, and more teamwork.
And, the Scrum Guide has previously been hosted in various locations throughout the web. Beginning today, the Scrum Guide and its translations have a new home. Ken and Jeff have decided to host The Scrum Guide at one location, http://www.ScrumGuides.org.
Read the summary of changes between the 2011 and 2013 Scrum Guide, and view the video of Ken and Jeff above. Look for more translated versions of the Scrum Guide to be published over the coming weeks.
