Hi, 

Does anyone know whether PSU certification exam is going to be available without requiring a course (similar to PSM, PSK, etc)? Currently it is offered only as a course. 

Thanks,
Erez

The PSU I assessment is currently only available to students of the PSU class. We are limiting access initially so that we can inspect and adapt, ensure that PSU I is high-quality, and provide adequate learning resources for those who do not take a training course from Scrum.org.  The certification assessment will be made publicly available at a future date.

Thank you Eric, will be looking forward for this non-course certification. If you need beta testers, I'm willing to participate.

Having attended one of the early PSU courses, I would recommend anyone interested in the subject considers doing the same.

When you have the Scrum Team addressing UX concerns, it feels like it's almost stress-testing Scrum. It starts to challenge whether previously held assumptions and best-practices are really valid any more:

For instance, what is "Done" when the team are running UX experiments, and can a "releasable Increment" be released before we are "Done"?
What happens to UX work that is expected to take longer than a sprint, such as experiments that have an inherent lead time to gather enough data?
How do Sprint Goals change when the team is responsible for UX? How might a Daily Scrum and Sprint Backlog change as a result?

The answers to these questions can be quite nuanced, and I benefited from exploring them in a group of UX and Scrum experts, facilitated by PSU trainers.

Unfortunately there are no PSU trainers in my country

Hi Erez, we are still traveling the world training our trainers and getting classes scheduled.  Please keep checking as I expect them to start showing in other countries soon.  Do you have others interested in joining with you?  That could help us get something scheduled more quickly.
