Through interactive exercises, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the Scrum values. Participants will walk away with increased awareness of their team's current aptitude for the Scrum values and techniques for coaching them.

Scrum is a framework to enable agility, not a set of steps that will guarantee success. People have to do the hard work of solving complex problems, of coming up with innovative solutions, of experimenting and adjusting to deliver amazing products. There is no silver bullet, but there is a secret to Scrum success -- Scrum values.

The Scrum values are the lifeblood of the Scrum framework. The creators of Scrum believe values are so important and so often misunderstood or neglected that they updated the Scrum Guide in July of 2016 to include values. The Scrum values are focus, openness, commitment, courage, and respect. The words are easy to remember, but it can be difficult to understand what they mean, how to apply them, and how to recognize them. Without the Scrum values, we are just going through the motions. Applying the Scrum values maximizes our efforts with Scrum.

Agile is a mindset, not a methodology.
