Introduction by Gunther Verheyen – independent Scrum Caretaker
I created the first version of my Scrum Glossary for my book “Scrum – A Pocket Guide” (Van Haren Publishing, 2013). That version was subsequently (and with my permission) re-used, edited and expanded for use on their website by Scrum.org.
In 2018 I updated my glossary for the 2nd edition of my pocket guide to Scrum (Annex A, p. 105). Around that time, 2018-2019, members from the global Scrum communities translated that version in 20+ languages.
I made more edits as I added my Scrum Glossary to my book “97 Things Every Scrum Practitioner Should Know” (O’Reilly Media, 2020) and to the 3rd edition of “Scrum – A Pocket Guide” (Van Haren Publishing, 2021). Along the road I also made it available via my website.
I am honoured and humbled for the continued appreciation of my glossary. It helped me see that there was value in giving it a dedicated home, which is now scrumglossary.org. I gladly share my Scrum Glossary in this document that can be downloaded from that website.
