TL; DR: The Scrum Guide Reordered

The Scrum Guide Reordered 2020 is based on about 95 percent of the text of the Scrum Guide 2020, extending its original structure by adding additional categories, for example, on self-management, commitments, or accountability.

The Scrum Guide–Reordered allows you to get an understanding of Scrum-related questions quickly. For example, it is good at relating a specific topis — say “stakeholder” — with Scrum’s first principles such as Scrum Values, or empiricism.

The Origin of the Scrum Guide Reordered

The Scrum Guide Reordered resulted from my preparation to pass’s Professional Scrum Master III certification on my path to becoming a Professional Scrum Trainier (PST).

While the Scrum Guide 2020 Reordered does not answer all questions you might have immediately, I found it very helpful to identify the patterns and principles used throughout the Scrum Guide. Moreover, it is a great tool to start meaningful discussions with your peers.
