Re: The business of OpenChain certifications


All prospective certifiers are recommended to become official OpenChain Partners. It is a simple, clear way to delineate quality.

I can't find it, but I thought there was an ISO standard on how to set-up certification agencies (i.e. how to get certified as an agency that can issue high-quality marks). Does this apply or can anyone (Joe's Waffle House) create a mark as long as they have the marketing dollars to make customers believe the mark means something?
PS: The answer is yes, as all the bogus Scrum certifications show (the word certification or certification mark is not protected AFAIK).

What I meant is: Does this working group want to let it come to that?

Cheers, Dirk
