"Many thanks, really enjoyed the Certification hack session. It's packed with useful and informative tips. Like any excellent ceremony, you feel positively energized afterwards."
"Quite useful seeing all these certs and figuring out what to go for... you must have spent quite a bit of time on this!"
"Just a note to thank you for the focused and valuable overview and discussion of the available Agile certifications, certifying organizations, and 'game plan' advice for planning my path to certification. The summary charts detailing costs and requirements are really helpful. Having someone who’s 'been there/done that' give advice and share experiences was a great comfort." :-)
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Anyone interested in how Agile Certifications can increase their knowledge, grow their organization, improve their teams, and advance their careers. This Seminar isn't just for Scrum students, it is also for Agile Coaches, Scrum Masters, and Scrum Trainers.
We discuss other ways for ourselves and our students to grow in our knowledge of Agile and Scrum. Ways that don't inherently compromise ourselves or our message. Ways that deliver more value, faster, through self-organization, not centralization. Ways more true to the spirit of Agile and Scrum. Ways without PowerPoint presentations. :-)

"I had spent hours looking through the websites of various Agile/Scrum organizations. However, with limited knowledge of the subject I had difficulty determining which ones would best help me develop my skills and promote myself in the field.
In Tom’s one hour presentation he provided an overview of the organizations, identified key aspects of each one, and honed in on sources that best help to minimize time and cost to effectively learn about, and position myself to work in, Agile/Scrum.
It was well worth attending."
"I've tended to dismiss certifications as a way to force intelligent people to have to keep paying an organization in perpetuity to show the world that they're smart. ;)
After taking your advice, I downloaded the Scrum guide, read it twice, and then did the practice assessment about 5 times. Honestly as someone who has been doing agile for a while, I felt pretty prepared after that. Today, I took and passed the PSM 1 certification test!
I wouldn't have thought to even look into it before your webinar last week- so THANK YOU!"
