This is an explosive new post where I (Michael Vizdos) in conjunction with some other Certified Scrum Trainers — will RELEASE ALL our material into public domain (under creative commons) so that anyone can use what we have developed over the years.
Is this selfish of us doing this?
We will promise that you will not be able to “certify” new Scrum Masters (from the point of view of the Scrum Alliance, a non-profit organization).
Does this matter?
If you *would* like “Certified” trainers to come in and help with your training roll-outs — we are available to do that. In the end, we have realized that there is more of a need to get people exposed to the Certified Scrum Training materials that a few of us have been selling (the training services of) for many years.
Here is the plan.
Try to use this information in your organization.
