Get ready to keep agile weird and embrace our wonderful, passionate community of trailblazers next May in Portland, Oregon for the Global Scrum Gathering 2023 Portland + Beyond.
We’ve had a couple crazy years where our agility, adaptability, and perseverance have been put to the test. But it’s time to look to the future and ask the question on everybody’s mind: What’s next for agile? Where are we going as individuals and as a community shaping the future of the world of work? Gather with us to dive into these questions and more alongside other like-minded changemakers.
In 2004, the scrum community launched these must-attend agile events to serve the agilists at the forefront of transforming the world of work. Gatherings were (and still are) put on by the community, for the community. The events were nothing fancy: just passionate and curious people coming together to talk about what they had learned, what they wanted to try. After several years of grassroots conferences and meetups, Scrum Alliance started working with the community members in 2013 to build amazing experiences for our agilists.
Expect to immerse yourself in an incredible community, attend interactive sessions that help you immediately test your new skills, and enjoy brilliant presentations by the sharpest minds in agile implementation. Gatherings bring forth the creative innovator in all of us and connect you with the community you need to thrive in the new world of work you face today.
Bonus: If you hold a Scrum Alliance certification, this event is worth 24 Scrum Education Units (SEUs) toward your renewal.
