In this spirited episode, our five panelists (Jay Hrcsko, Troy Lightfoot, James Gifford, Andrew Leff, and Ryan Lockard) discuss the current position of agile certifications and where they see Agile heading. At times lively, the discussion covers certifications from Scrum Alliance,, SAFe, PMI and others. With varying views on the relevance of certification, some healthy debate arises.

In this episode, you will hear several members speak to the training skills of Dave Prior, you can find his upcoming trainings here. We also discuss Alistair Cockburn's Agile Master Class, which has some international sessions currently open for registration here. And you hear James make several mentions to a W.L. Gore article, which you can read here.

Unfortunately, our interview with Ken fell through. Ken was very kind to offer time to sit with us, but due to multiple factors outside of his control, and conflicting schedules, we are deferring to publishing a mashup of interviews recently published on youtube - published with permission.

While there was a strong desire to sit with Ken, we are most interested in sharing his story which this show does. We are also very happy to share the paper that Ken wrote and presented (famously) in the 1995 OOPSLA conference in Austin, Texas

You can find the article at this thread on the Coalition

We hope you visit, and consider following them on twitter, Ken on twitter, Dave West on twitter, and Eric Naiberg on twitter.
