single governing body. I know the big Scrum practitioners meet from
time-to-time, i.e. ScrumGathering, to evaluate their direction. I
have no idea what they decide or talk about. However, what does a
"real" certification mean to you? What would it mean to have a
"single governing body that determines what certification means"?
There was some discussion a few months back where the question came up
about taking away someone's certification because they completely
missed the spirit of Scrum and self-organizing teams. The end result
of the discussion was pretty while a certificate can be issued, there
is no way (or will) to police people on "proper application" of Scrum.
Does this anecdote help?
