Scrum.org, the Home of Scrum, announced today that it has launched a new digital badging program through Credly. Scrum.org provides Professional Scrum certification assessments that cover a range of areas related to the knowledge and real-world use of Scrum.
In a press release, Scrum.org's CEO, Dave West, noted,” At Scrum.org, we help ensure that individuals understand how to deliver high value products with higher levels of agility using Scrum based on validated learning. To help meet that goal, Scrum.org provides training, free resources, digital learning paths and assessments that can be used as tools to examine, enhance, and certify Scrum knowledge.
“Now with Credly, we are providing an additional digital representation of Professional Scrum certifications. Our certification holders can group their Scrum skills with other skills and more easily manage, share and promote their achievements.”
People who earn industry certifications are often seeking positive career outcomes like a new job, promotion, or salary increase. Collecting all of their industry credentials, certifications, and learning achievements within one management platform - and deciding where and with whom to share those achievements - helps professionals best represent their professional “big picture” to recruiters and prospective employers.
“In a world that has aligned on skills as the currency of the modern labor market, earning a Professional Scrum certification is a trusted signal of one’s ability to apply Scrum in the real-world to tackle complex problems," said Jonathan Finkelstein, CEO of Credly, in Scrum.org’s announcement. "By issuing digital credentials to the over 567,000 people they have already certified and counting, Scrum.org is helping better connect these individuals to opportunities that value professionalism and fidelity to a common set of skills and competencies."
