Thanks for the link, I was not aware that there is a separate site for DA, and separate community. It looks like membership is only for certified in DA...
I agree with you, it is strange that PMI is introducing new communities with additional membership fee.
It would be good idea also to be able to see and, or access this site from PMI home page. May be it is possible, but I have not see it.
If you see, there is a possibility to be member without certification.
My concern is: DA "is PMI" then it is not reasonable to pay an extra fee for that.
I know this will sound rude but it could be a demostration when an organization trying to make business is destroying the business.
I agree with you, I already mentioned here that fact. But it's not all separate some benefits are common , like the access to the resources of this social network.
I heard rumors that PMI is preparing to create levels of expertise, I can not confirm , but the source is reliable .
at each level it will be associated several certifications, so I think that this is a Economical strategy based on profit , to influence the members to apply to the certifications that are part of each level.
I cannot guarantee that this will happen , but all is pointing for total integration between DA, PMI and Brightline, the future will tell.
all you stated is ready. "Entrey Level" is called Disciplined Agilist and you do not need to have a certification to adhere. My concern is why we have to pay an extra fee than the anual PMI fee for being there.
This is the model which was in place pre-PMI acquisition. Like all company acquisitions, integration activities take a while to complete, so I'd expect that harmonization of membership benefits, dues and so on will take some time.
Let's see if Scott or Mark provide the "official" response on this...
Interesting. Was not aware. If under the same umbrella, opportunity for consolidation or recognition of this phenomenom.
Let's see what other information we can learn.
It will be interesting to see how things in this aquisition will shape up.
I heard if you are a paid DA Member, you can renew you certificates annually for free. If this is true, then if they waive the membership fees since they are now part of PMI, they might impose certificates renewal fees. Just thinking loudly.
In fact, as you can see, certification retention force not only an anual payment, professional development too, in some cases specific for DA. But, I have no concern with certification schemas. My concern is about to be a member has a fee, if I understood well.
when you click on "Take out a membership".
