Listen to the podcast Announcing Scrum Certification by Net Objectives 

Scrum Certification by Net Objectives is a new program by Net Objectives to help the industry and especially our clients have a reliable, repeatable, and meaningful process by which to assess the competency of individuals and teams to be on a Scrum Team, to be a Scrum Master, or to be a Product Owner. This podcast announces the program and the motivations behind it, including the following:

  • What this program is and what it covers
  • The motivation behind this program
  • Why the industry needs certification in Scrum
  • What we mean by “certification”
  • What certification will involve
  • When it will be ready

The need for this is borne out of our experience having trained almost 20,000 people in Scrum and working with many major corporations rolling out Scrum, what people need to get proficient with Scrum.
