A few instructors from the University of California (UCSC-Ext) launched a project management website featuring a blog platform with insightful articles.

The website expanded its offerings with various programs and training modules.

Despite a global recession causing a slowdown in activity, the website remained operational and continued to host various project management practitioners.

The University of California (UCSC-Ext)considered shutting down the website due to insufficient contributors. However, SVPM co-founders David and Donald intervened and took over. They transformed the platform from a mere blog site into a vibrant community of agile-minded project managers.

The first pilot volunteer Scrum Team was formed, and the Silicon Valley Project Management Scrum Team (SVPM) program was established to provide a means for certified Scrum Masters and Product Owners to obtain Scrum experience and other Agile practices through immersion. The SVPM Scrum Team Program became a 501c3 non-profit initiative under the Agile & Scaled-Value Project Management (ASVPM) Organization.

SVPM started to grow and achieved a lot of successes since the transformation. It quickly grew into 3 scrum teams comprising passionate project management volunteers dedicated to agile frameworks.

ASVPM started hosting monthly Meetup events supported by volunteer veteran leadership members of the SVPM Scrum Team program. These events offer presentations and talks from industry-recognized experts, authors and speakers in the field of Agile and Project Management.

The SVPM Scrum Team program established its 4th volunteer scrum team and developed 3 additional operational and organisational support teams using Kanban.

The community continues to grow, attracting 50-60 volunteers each month. Currently, it boasts 8 agile scrum teams and lean kanban teams, actively practicing hybrid agile framework and nurturing more and more project managers.
