Increasing the Velocity of Value w/ Dave West

Scrum is famous for introducing the idea of velocity. Increasing the amount of work that a team can deliver. But actually, Scrum was never focused on increasing the velocity of work it was always focused on increasing the velocity of value. The ideas of self-management, goals, and the accountability of the Product Owner were meant to provide a foundation for teams to value-centric. But over the last 25 years, Scrum has often been applied to deliver work, a subtle but crucial difference. This has greatly reduced the ‘value’ that Scrum delivers and re-enforced many of the industrial concepts that agility was meant to replace.

In this talk, Dave West, CEO of Scrum.org talks about why orienting to value rather than work is a key requirement for building an agile capability, and how the 2020 update to the Scrum Guide provides a foundation for teams and organizations to review their approach to value.
