Update: The Basic Membership is now a two-year subscription for only $100.
Our new Basic Membership level is be open to all who are interested in Scrum. This contrasts with the other Scrum Alliance membership levels which were only open to graduates of CSM and CSPO courses, Certified Scrum Developers, Certified Scrum Professionals, Certified Scrum Coaches and Certified Scrum Trainers.
"I see the move as a way to engage all those interested in changing the way we deliver products –- whether they are certified or not," said Bob Sarni of RippleRock. “Some have interest in certification and the education received, others are just interested in education and awareness –- all should be focused on practice, sharing, improving and innovation.
Those who sign up for the new Basic Membership receive the Scrum Alliance e-newsletter, event discounts, and an advance look at industry announcements via the Scrum Alliance blog. There are also intangible benefits to joining the Scrum Alliance -- members have a chance to learn from the brightest minds in the Agile community, and get the opportunity to network with Scrum Alliance community members.
"We're glad to be able to offer a Basic Membership subscription for individuals who aren't Scrum Alliance-certified. I look forward to their contributions both on our website and at upcoming events," said Donna Farmer, Managing Director of the Scrum Alliance.
Opening up membership in the Scrum Alliance to more potential members will help spread the reach and influence of Scrum. As those who are interested in learning about Scrum get a chance to experience the framework and its ideas first hand, they will be able to help spread the positive impact of Scrum.
