A Letter from the CEO - October 2015

Over the last few newsletters, we've discussed the strategic changes and improvements we're making to build up our value proposition. We continue to listen to the community and learn from our members while working together to enhance the member experience.

One of the many questions we get from students after they take a Certified ScrumMaster® course is, "How do I get a job as a ScrumMaster now?" Recently, we have taken big strides toward partnering with Agile companies, both within corporate America and globally. We want to offer our members a front-row seat to find and apply for jobs where they can showcase their Scrum and Agile expertise.

By the end of 2015, we will launch our new and improved AgileCareers.com, which will help Agile professionals and organizations connect to create both career and organizational growth opportunities. This new feature will continue to be a membership benefit from Scrum Alliance.

As we increase our AgileCareers.com features and relationships with top Agile organizations, we look forward to 2016, when we'll launch a new event, the AgileCareers Networking Expo. This will go hand in hand with our Global Scrum Gathering Orlando. Visit AgileCareers.com, also on Twitter and Facebook, and sign up for news alerts so you will be among the first informed with details about this new event and how you can get involved.

Additionally, we will be launching a brand-new publication at our Gathering in Orlando, AgileVox magazine, offered in print as well as in an interactive, online version with additional video content.

Finally, stay tuned in 2016 for the biggest sweepstakes the organization has ever held!

A Letter from the CEO - September 2015

When was the last time you left the office and spent the entire day interacting with others, face to face? For many, that's a rare occurrence. Making human connections, shaking hands, and sharing ideas and challenges reenergizes and inspires us. 
 
Scrum Alliance is continually working on membership benefits, and I want to highlight our member opportunities that provide this interpersonal collaboration that is essential to our continuous growth. Our Global and Regional Gatherings have been held in many locations around the world. The locations of these events change each year to allow as many people as possible the chance to attend.  However, once you have been to a Gathering, you know that location has little bearing; participants travel from around the world to network and learn! 
 
Most recently, global economic growth has been led by the BRIC countries: Brazil, Russia, India, and China are projected to be the fastest-growing market economies, and the wealthiest, by 2050.
 
While working to grow our mission globally and Transform the World of Work, Scrum Alliance has held gatherings in Brazil, China, and India during this past year. 
 
I had the great pleasure of attending the Regional Scrum Gathering® Rio in August. While there, I was able to meet many of our passionate members as well as representatives from 12 corporations, ranging in size from very small to the largest bank in Brazil! Shortly after my visit to Rio, I attended the Global Scrum Gathering® Shanghai. This was an incredible experience and a very successful event, filled with educational sessions, attended by an energetic audience, and providing a great networking opportunity for all. 
 
Attending our Gatherings, talking with our members face to face, and meeting with local organizations in these countries allows me to continue to learn the needs of our global community. 
 
Networking and collaborating with others is what helps us grow, both personally and professionally. If you can't travel by plane, I encourage you to look locally and even virtually. Beyond Global and Regional Gatherings, our Sponsored Events and User Groups provide plenty of opportunities for sharing and learning. Also, don’t forget about our virtual webinars, member articles, and other online resources. Tell us what topics you’d like to hear more about.
