Towards the end of 2018, The Scrum Alliance restructured its organization around a new leadership model. Howard Sublett returned to the Scrum Alliance as Chief Product Owner and shortly after that, Melissa Boggs joined as Chief Scrum Master. In these new roles, they are truly leading an effort to change the world of work. 

In this episode of the podcast, I had a chance to check in with Melissa and Howard on how the change is going. We discuss the changes made to the way the Scrum Alliance is organized around a team model, where individuals select areas they are most passionate about and teams where they can add the most value. 

We also talk about how this change has impacted each of them personally, digging into the things they are most proud of, the areas they are still working on, and lessons they have learned along the way. You can catch up on all of this by checking out their Unscripted posts (see the link below.)

The interview closes out with a little taste of what you can expect at the 2020 North American Global Scrum Gathering which is taking place in NYC this May.
