Commitments in Scrum

“Each artifact contains a commitment to ensure it provides information that enhances transparency and focus against which progress can be measured.”

The Scrum Team is committed to achieving the objectives and helping one another and the top 3 commitments in the scrum. The word “Commitment” refers to the requirement for a Scrum Team to be committed to one another in terms of the objective and how it aids the Scrum Team in fostering an atmosphere that is conducive to Scrum’s development. In Scrum, there are primarily 3 commitments that are based on 3 objects.

Why do we need Scrum commitments?

Plans are disliked by those who use Agile DevOps. Plans aren’t necessarily bad; in fact, one of the four declared values expressed in the Agile Manifesto is “responding to change over following a plan.” Every sprint in Scrum starts with a sprint planning meeting. A necessity of the sprint structure is planning. Planning nothing is unquestionably an Agile anti-pattern. The issue is that when diligent people receive a plan, they make every effort to carry it out. That can occasionally be counterproductive, particularly when circumstances change, which they invariably do.

What are the top 3 commitments in the scrum framework?

The top 3 commitments in the scrum framework are:

Product Goal: The product goal depicts a long-term, objective, or future state of the product. It is a crucial component of the Product Backlog that is mentioned as a responsibility in the Scrum Guide. The Product Goal is used by the Scrum Team to design against and stay current with the core. The product should get closer to the overall Product Goal with each Sprint.

Sprint Goal: Sprint Goals must be incorporated into the framework according to Scrum. It is jointly developed by the Scrum Team during a Sprint planning meeting. Based on the Product Owner’s directives, the Development Team chooses which functionality and technology it will use to accomplish the goal.

Definition of Done- All Product Backlog Items (PBIs) in a company have an official Definition of Done (DoD) that specifies the item’s level of quality. If the company doesn’t already have one, the Scrum team should create one. The Increment artifact’s commitment serves as a representation of completion.

How are the three main Commitments of Scrum useful?

  • Importance of Product Goal: You must define product goals in order to make a Scrum Team’s vision a reality. By emphasizing how the product helps the firm, they frequently aid in its expansion. They must be distinct, quantifiable, and doable.
  • Importance of Sprint Goal: Sprint Goals encourage the refinement of the Product Backlog. Team members gain from having a focus that enables them to create features or functionalities that integrate nicely. Stakeholders can better understand what is being accomplished during a sprint by using sprint goals. Decision-makers can maintain coherence and focus by using sprint targets.
  • Importance of Definition of Done: When a team uses the Definition of Done, everyone on the team is clear on what is expected of what they produce. It is guaranteed that the product and organization will operate with transparency and quality.


The value of commitment extends beyond the Scrum Team deciding to deliver a specific amount of work throughout a Sprint. In Scrum, responsibility refers to the whole actions and effort required to realize a vision and is associated with a commitment to a cause, an objective, or a dream.
