Step-by-Step Process to Claim Your Membership

Posted By Liz Crider, Wednesday, April 13, 2016

We understand that if you are Certified through Scrum Alliance claiming your membership is a clunky process. I assure you we're working on this and hope to have some changes in place in the coming months. Until then, here is the step-by-step process to claim your membership.

You need to claim your membership first on the certification site. http://www.scrumalliance.org/login

1. Login with your email and password here: http://www.scrumalliance.org/login
2. On the top right hover over “Settings” and click “Certification Dashboard”
3. Once you are on this page, there is a big blue button that says “Claim Membership”, click that
4. Complete the form on this page, please note that you need your password to claim.
5. You will be redirected to the new community and membership site. This is not single sign-on, you login with your email address and current Scrum Alliance password.

If you change your password on the membership site, it will not change on the Certification site and will then be different.

Your Username is your email address, not your username on the Scrum Alliance Certification site.​

The Scrum Alliance Certification site is: https://www.scrumalliance.org/
The Scrum Alliance Membership Community site is: http://membership.scrumalliance.org/

We will continue to work on these sites, so please stay tuned for updates!

As part of our goal to effectively engage our Scrum and Agile Community members, we built this new platform to create a place to grow these conversations.  We know that with any site launch, update, or change come new challenges. We know that the process has not been perfect and I assure you that we are listening to everything you say. Please email me personally at lcrider@scrumalliance.org with any questions, comments, concerns, or general feedback.

I encourage you to help us along the way so that together we can build a harmonious place for Scrum and Agile practitioners to network, learn, communicate, and engage.

A Letter from the CEO - February 2016

Posted By Manny Gonzalez, Tuesday, February 9, 2016

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!

How to Claim Your Membership

Posted By Liz Crider, Thursday, January 21, 2016
Updated: Thursday, January 21, 2016

I am sure many of you are excited to get into the new community and participate in the blogs, forums, and connect with other Scrum practitioners.

So, how do you claim and activate your Scrum Alliance Community Membership?

Follow these steps: 

Visit www.ScrumAlliance.org and login to your account. Remember your password, as this is needed to complete your registration.

Hover over "Settings" on the top right drop down menu and click on "My Membership". You can also activate your membership from the blue button on your Certification Dashboard. 

Complete the form to register and claim your Membership on the the new platform.You will be automatically redirected to the new platform.

Note: If you have already claimed your registration once, the system will recognize that and when you click "My Membership" it will take you to the Membership platform.

Watch this tutorial video:

 

What if your Certification is expired?

Certifications and Memberships are separating within the Scrum Alliance Organization. What does this mean? Well, you can be a member of Scrum Alliance and not be certified and you can be certified and not be a member of Scrum Alliance. If your membership is expired, then you still receive a free 90-day trial membership to the community.

All those that are certified within Scrum Alliance will continue to receive their first two years of membership complimentary with their course fee. After those 2 years expire, it is up to the member to decide if they wish to renew their membership.

The team has been working hard to produce value for our members and with that we are introducing this new platform. Membership includes new benefits within the community and more to come throughout the year. We hope that our members join us in our mission to Transform the World of Work.

Please email us with any questions.

Welcome to the Community!

Our 2015 Year in Review Plus What's Coming in 2016

Posted By Liz Crider, Monday, December 28, 2015
Updated: Thursday, February 4, 2016

2015 has been a pivotal and action-packed year for Scrum Alliance. Introducing our CEO, recruiting 12 new team members, improving our certifications, conducting important research, and other significant efforts have contributed to our mission of Transforming the World of Work.

We'd like to congratulate our training and coaching community on conducting more than 6,000 courses in 76 countries in 2015, with 100,000 individuals in attendance!

Without our ardent community of 450,000+ practitioners across 180+ countries, these accomplishments would not be possible.

Thank you for all of your support!
