Hi! My name is Hava Kurt, and I feel honored to run for a position on the Scrum Alliance® Board of Directors.

Digitalization requires the comprehensive transformation of existing business models, driven by continuously improvement in the value chain. This concerns non-profit organizations, profit organizations as well as every individual in the facing digital world.

Therefore my point of view will be Scrum in the Digital Future and Internet of Things. This is to bring in creativity and solution ideas. But first to ask for questions as, how can we provide and extend the Scrum ability and agility at all or in the value chain? Do we have to adapt Scrum or other current valid programms and how? Do we have to adapt the focus of the target area and groups? The members of Scrum Alliance are all individuals and each of us is part of the change we are facing to. And therefore it is a need to face with questions and new ideas and maybe new ways. While asking, I will have always in mind the five Scrum values (Respect, Focus, Commitment, Openness, and Courage), which represent the way of the future. I would love to serve for you as a board member, and I think that my intentions will contribute a diverse view including value.

A quick introduction:
