Here’s an article I came across that talks about how the subtle difference in language can make a big difference in how we see things when it comes to the work we do (or don’t do) in a sprint.

Bak in 2011, the Scrum Guide<> changed over from using “Commitment” to “Forecast” when talking about the work agreed to by the development team in a sprint. This was done to change the perception.

What are your thoughts? Do you think it matters? Is it important to have “commitments”?
