If we look at the history of the Fortune 500, from 1955 to 2014, according to Mark J. Perry’s article on the American Enterprise Institute, almost 88% of the originally listed companies no longer appear on the roster. What does this type of turnover mean? Often it's attributed to creative destruction and innovation. If an organization is not innovating and delivering creative new products and services, consumers will find those things elsewhere.
At Scrum Alliance®, our vision is to Transform the World of Work. Our mission is to guide and inspire individuals, leaders, and organizations with practices, principles, and values that create workplaces that are joyful, prosperous, and sustainable.
Over the past few months, we’ve made massive strides in developing products and services to contribute to our vision and mission, to foster innovation and Agile transformations within organizations so that they can remain competitive.
Today, I’d like to congratulate our Membership Services team as led by Liz Crider in launching two new platforms: Community and AgileCareers. The features and environments of these two platforms are designed to facilitate collaboration and to connect Agile practioners and organizations around the world. Not only do these platforms have tools and functionality built-in that our community has been asking for, but they also have a team of passionate individuals supporting them.
If you are attending an upcoming Scrum Alliance Global Gathering, be sure to stop by the Community booth and the AgileCareers Expo to learn more about how these two platforms will accelerate your Agile transformation!
