How does one become an "expert" in Evidence-based Management (EBM)? Is there a certification or application process?

The "official" response, in case anyone else is curious:

Thank you for your interest in Scrum.org and for your message. We appreciate and commend your interest in learning more about the process of becoming a Scrum.org 'EBMgt Expert.' With regards to your inquiry, however, our 'EBMgt Expert' application and certification process is currently closed. We are not accepting any new applications for our 'EBMgt Expert' program at this time. If and when this status should change and we are accepting new applications for this distinction, an application form along with prerequisites, requirements and other relevant information will be added to our website on http://www.ebmgt.org/

If you should happen to be interested in the process of becoming a Scrum.org Professional Scrum Trainer (PST), there's a fairly rigorous certification process that begins with submitting an application. More information and links can be found on the PST Selection Process page. In addition to applications and information regarding the PST requirements, you may also find a "Contact us" button through the application links, where you may directly contact the Program Director of the PST Community with any further questions that you might have regarding the process.

Hello Mark,

Thank you for your interest in this topic and for your post. In retrospect, "paused" (as opposed to "closed") would actually be the more appropriate word choice for the present state of the 'EBMgt Expert' application and certification process.

Currently, we have a committed focus set upon preparation for our upcoming Scrum@Scale Workshops:


The Scrum@Scale workshop is targeted at development managers, coaches, facilitators, change agents and leaders of organizations that need to formulate, implement, and manage Scrum at scale; whether they are considering, embarking on or going through an agile transformation.

Individuals having interest in EBMgt might very well hold interest in these workshops as well :-)

Enjoy your weekend!
