Scum Certified Agile Master (SCAM) Training

Scrum Master CertificationI’ve just stumbled across this genius piece of work from Scott Ambler, who recently posted here on All About Agile about agile project management and the challenges of agile project initiation.

Those who’ve followed my blog for a while will already know that I think Certified Scrum Master training isn’t worth the paper it’s written on!

Don’t get me wrong. I’m a really big fan of Scrum. And I’d heartily recommend going on a Certified Scrum training course. It’s just the combination of terms ‘Certified’ and ‘Master’ for attending a two day course that I don’t like.

Anyway, this was an April fool’s joke, so PLEASE don’t take it too seriously. As I say, I love Scrum and yet I still thought it was a really witty view of the shortcomings of the certification process. Read it here – sense of humour permitting!

What People Say

“Kelly is an Agile heavy-weight. He came in to assess my multi-million $ Agile development program which wasn’t delivering the right throughput. He interviewed most of the team and made some key recommendations that, when implemented, showed immediate results. I couldn’t ask for more than that except he’s a really nice guy as well.”
