Membership is open to anyone who meets the criteria. We are particularly looking to encourage talented trainers in countries and regions that do not have top level certified coaches and trainers from the established organizations.
- live the Agile mindset by uncovering better ways and helping others to do the same, so we lead by example and inspiration.
- emphasize the why behind the how, so people can figure things out for themselves.
- treat Scrum not a religious text to obey but a reference implementation to build on, so people can make further improvements without fear.
- consider Scrum not a ruleset to follow but a series of opportunities to ask powerful questions, so people can build on the guidelines.
- negotiate changes that are in mutual interest to increase the likelihood of success.
