Scrum.org “Updates to the Scrum Guide: The 5 Scrum values take center stage” www.scrum.org/resources/blog/5-scrum-values-take-center-stage meetings can be painful for everyone, especially if they are poorly planned. They feel like a waste of time that could have been invested elsewhere. What`s particularly frustrating is that these are usually spontaneous meetings that disrupt everyone`s day and can impair team members` ability to complete their tickets within a set amount of time. Work agreements are the rules/disciplines/processes that the team commits to committing to without error, in order to make themselves more efficient and become the self-administered aspect of Scrum. These agreements help the team develop a common understanding of what it means to work as a team.
