Newsletter Survey Says …

A recap of the February newsletter survey results

Thanks to all of you who provided feedback on our refreshed newsletter in February. Your input will help us improve the newsletter and make it an increasingly valuable member resource.

Congratulations to Cristobal Rodriguez, whose name was randomly selected from all survey participants to win the complimentary registration to the Global Scrum Gathering in Las Vegas, May 6-8. Look for more opportunities to contribute in this and coming issues of the Scrum Alliance newsletter.

There was a range of feedback. Some of you prefer short introductions, with links to full articles, while others prefer full articles within the newsletter. Some like a lot of graphics and pictures; for others, the fewer the better. But some general themes emerged.
Overall, you told us you like the new look of the newsletter. The length — and much of the content — is on target. You also gave us ideas of things you'd like to see, both in the content and in the layout of the newsletter:

Content:
  • More about Scrum, less about Scrum Alliance internal operations
  • Scrum tips
  • Featured case studies, including successes, failures, and Scrum outside software, and links to relevant articles on the website
  • Local event information
Layout:
  • Subheads that describe the article, particularly for longer articles
  • Bigger font
  • A good mix of photos and graphics
We've implemented some of your suggestions in this March issue. Others will be placed on our backlog and considered as we plan our upcoming releases.

Thanks again for your feedback.
