The Agile Alliance saved me a blog post, and said it much better.
It is the position of the board of the Agile Alliance that employers should have confidence only in certifications that are skill-based and difficult to achieve.
We also believe that employers should not require certification of employees.
We are not a certification body and do not endorse any certification programs.
Seriously, click the link. It would be nice to see AST say something like this.
