What's so good about scrum?

In all the Agile/Scrum certification and training discussion's I've read on the web in recent months, the most interesting thing I've seen is this little graphic, which was a mere footnote on a Ken Schwaber post.

Why is this interesting?

Because scrum is "just a methodology."  It's a good one, and it's very tightly integrated as a process.  But, a process (or framework or whatever) is just a process.  What's most important is the principles and values behind it.

This graphic nicely summarizes the values behind scrum.  Do they align with yours?  If not, maybe scrum is not for you.
