Introduction

Scrum Alliance® volunteer teams offer members and certificants worldwide the opportunity to come together to share their passion and knowledge about Agile and Scrum practices. The Global Scrum GatheringSM Review Team works in collaboration with the North American Gathering Team (NAGT) and Scrum Alliance staff to virtually review abstract submissions for Global Scrum GatheringSM New York (SGNYC20).
 
Overview
The Global Scrum Gathering Review Team will virtually review and score abstract submissions for Global Scrum GatheringSM New York. The sessions scored by the team will be used to create the New York Gathering program (selected by the NAGT). The final program will engage practitioners and business professionals through high-quality learning experiences, exclusive opportunities, and innovative event elements.
 
Team Membership
The Gathering Review Team consists of members of the Scrum Alliance Community, either via membership or certification. The selection of team members is based (in part) on subject-matter expertise (SME), along with balanced representation of the Scrum Alliance community. Selection criteria may include diversity considerations such as geography.
 
Responsibilities
Reviewer team members work in collaboration with the North American Gathering Team to review submissions for their designated team, and are responsible for fairly scoring submissions using a rubric provided by Scrum Alliance. Reviewers will self-organize to complete all reviews within their designated team, and will need to provide actionable written feedback that can be distributed to the submitting authors.
 
Reviewers contribute virtually via email and SMS applications, and are required to review a training video prior to reviewing submissions in September 2019. Team members will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement and are expected to abide by the agreement and Scrum Alliance code of conduct, as well as the working agreement designed by their designated review team.
 
Time Commitment
Team members can expect to spend approximately 8-10 hours per week for reviewing submissions during the review period from the beginning of September to mid October.
 
Compensation
All reviewers who complete the minimum required number of reviews will receive $100 USD off their Global Scrum GatheringSM New York registration, and are eligible to submit Scrum Education Units (SEUs) toward certification renewal. Reviewers are elgible for one (1) SEU per one (1) hour of review time.
