What will happen to DA and its products?
Now that Scott Ambler and Mark Lines have dropped out of PMI, what will happen to DA and its purposes?

Scott and Mark have setup a capable team at PMI to keep the ball rolling, and I'd expect that they will continue to have their input into the evolution of the toolkit along with the rest of the broader DA community.

During a webinar a few months ago, Scott indicated that the DASM certifications was going to be renamed to better reflect the diversified nature if DA. Has there been any update on what that renaming of the certification may look like?

Renaming hasn't come up in the DAVSC community, recently, but there are other tools/aids we're working on. I'm a little concerned that the communities of practice for DAC and DAVSC don't seem to get a lot of engagement, but I think that is more because of the model PMI is using. They might be better served by having one DA community for all DA certifications with breakout areas for specializations and encouraging those with DA certifications and experience to interact with those still working on one or both, or moving content and contributors here.

That makes sense but I didn’t know that both left PMI … was there an announcement?

Thank you Kiron. I just checked their LinkedIn.
It is normal during acquisitions that the buying entity keeps the leader(s) of the bought company on their payroll for a year or so and then they depart.

The assets bought already showed some impact as PMI's reputation in the agile sphere grew a bit. And also there is some influence on PMI's strategy and operations.

Also normally, the buying entity will integrate the assets until they become part of the portfolio (mainly for efficiency reasons) and are no longer separate.

Dear Thomas

Honestly... I would have liked to have known the ins and outs of the business

Has this strategic inflection been the best for PMI?

Dear Luis

yes, can understand your desire.

I have no idea if it (their departure) is good or bad for PMI, or more importantly the PM profession. Maybe it does not matter so much.
Mission accomplished.

I do not have any specific answer to your question, however, I hope it does not affect negatively.
Scott Ambler, Mark Lines and time before Al Shalloway. Forget about DA in the framework of PMI. Just my perception with no additional information in my hands.

Dear Sergio
I would like to understand your line of reasoning a little better.
