Scaled Professional Scrum (SPS certification exam)
I am hoping the more involved members may be able to help, I am looking at the SPS event in London and am extremely interested however I notice that scrum.org currently doesn't have any certifications regarding Scaled Professional Scrum.
I am PSM 2 and have studied other scaled methodologies e.g. SAFE and LESS and have worked on some large scale agile programmes however I am particularly interested in SPS, the issue I have is I work for a consultancy and without a specific certification exam available to demonstrate the knowledge gained/achieved over time is a hard sale to my company to send me on this? Is there any certification exam in the pipeline?
It's great to hear of your interest in our Scaled Professional Scrum program! In an effort to deliver immediate value to those seeking to increase agility in their organizations and scale and manage Scrum projects successfully, we are happy to have released the first increment of our SPS program; the SPS course.
Though it is too early to project a release date, please know that Scrum.org is indeed planning to develop a Scaled Professional Scrum assessment for certification. As further details about the release of our SPS assessment/certification becomes available, we'll be sure to post this information on our site.
Thank you and enjoy your day, Aaron!
