You know you want to attend the Global Scrum Gathering in Portland, but how do you convince your boss to fund the experience? One way is to show them how the event will provide value in the form of your growth and how that can positively impact your company or organization.
If you’re championing agility at your company or organization, the Gathering is the place to dive deeper into the agile community and bring back what you learn.
Plus, the Gathering isn't tailored to a specific industry or career path. You can find useful insights and information to apply to your life, wherever your goals and dreams may be taking you.
Peers, mentors, and friends power many of our journeys to become more agile. The Gathering is a great place to meet new people and reunite with familiar faces to exchange ideas, share wins and challenges, and grow.
You never know what you’ll learn at a Global Scrum Gathering, but you can be sure you’ll leave with knowledge and tools you didn’t have before. Oftentimes, the learnings from a speaker session, Open Space, or the Coaches Clinic can be utilized as soon as you return to work.
Agile shouldn’t be a cold set of practices but a rich, multi-faceted, transformative way of working. People leave the Gathering feeling inspired and ready to show their colleagues and employers the joy that agile can bring.
Browse the agenda and show your employer the various helpful, engaging speaker sessions you want to attend. Point out sessions that could be immediately relevant to something at your job.
If you hold a Scrum Alliance certification, attending this event earns you 24 Scrum Education Units to apply for renewal! Let your employer know earning these SEUs is an essential part of your professional development and demonstrates your continued commitment to learning and growth.
The possibilities on an agile journey are endless. Whether you want to work in a scrum team, champion agile at your organization, become a coach, or pursue a different path, the learning and connection that takes place at the Gathering are designed to support you in your work as a changemaker.
