Scrum Alliance® has formed an exciting new Learning Consortium with 11 organizations to learn about the implications of innovative management practices under the emerging Creative Economy, such as the goals, practices, and values of Scrum.

Members of the Consortium will select five organizations and arrange a one-day site visit to each. The host organization will present and discuss its innovative management practices with participants at each site visit. Once the visits are complete, Scrum Alliance will organize a conference where the Learning Consortium will present and discuss what has been learned. These findings will then be published at the end of the year in an exclusive report.
