Rant about Commitment – One of the Scrum Values

The voting for re-introducing the five values of Scrum into the Scrum Guide is heating up with some great discussion (debate?). One person, Charles Bradley is providing some interesting arguments about why “commitment” should not be included or even changed to a different word. I have posted a response. I strongly believe that the word “commitment” is the right word. Here’s the first paragraph of my response:

Hi Charles, although I appreciate your concerns about the word commitment, there is still huge support for adding the five values back to the Scrum Guide, including using that “bad” word. I would like to present to you an argument for the use of the word commitment by telling a story.

A long time ago I had a really good friend….
