- "Certified Scrum Master": attend the course, and you're a CSM. Ridiculous.
- ICAgile certified classes: ditto
- PMP (PMI certification): might have a little more meat, but it's out of date, incredibly cumbersome, and doesn't really show whether you are a project manager, just that you have the knowledge about what a project manager does.

One of the things that spurs me on is the number of different kinds of certifications out there, and how meaningless so many of them are. Maybe that's only true in the IT / software development space. Regardless, there are some prime examples of what's wrong with the concept.
And so on.
One of my goals for Mastery Quest is to create community-driven, community-recognized, and employer-accepted status as people start to achieve and "level up".
