maintaining the same goals. Sometime next week the initial website will
be published and notification will be made to this list. The website
will be composed of two sections - a general information section and a
section for certified Scrum Masters which requires a user-name and
The new format is based on the Agile Alliance with its "programs".
Some of the key programs we are putting forward initially are:
* Education - providing methods of teaching and providing information
on Scrum in a manner that can be easily understand and properly
* Promotion - marketing of Scrum to various levels of business and
* Conference - the formation of the Scrum conference and the associated
Certified Scrum Master Gathering
* Open Source - using Scrum for open source development and the
management of Scrum related open source projects
* Virtual Scrum - use of Scrum with distributed teams in cross
Those are just really ruff summaries. Additional programs can be
created by Certified Scrum Masters and membership to existing programs
is available to Certified Scrum Masters.
As mentioned, the Alliance will have two faces:
1. The public face which provides general information about Scrum and
the Scrum Certifications
2. The Certified SM face which provides the latest versions of the
methodology and programs for the furtherment of Scrum.
If you take the Certification you are already a member of the Scrum
Alliance and a user-id and initial password will be generated and
e-mailed to you.
Quick summary. Hope it helps. Please feel free to e-mail me with any
questions or comments.
