First, examine the three pillars of Scrum: transparency, inspection, and adaptation; and the five Scrum values: commitment, openness, courage, respect, and focus. You will learn about the Scrum master, the development team, and product owner, and their roles in the daily Scrum. Next, learn about common artifacts and tools in Scrum, the use of the sprint backlog, and the product owner's role in delivery. You will learn how goals of a current sprint, also known as the sprint backlog, are taken directly from the top of the product backlog.
