All Scrum professionals have effects on improving and enriching the Scrum world. But, how much is the effect? Or, it is better to say that how do you affect this amazing world’s improvement. We thrive to classify Scrum professionals based on their contribution to making a better version of the Scrum world. To do so, we have introduced “Professional Score” which is a number between 1-10. Every Scrum professional will have the Professional Score showing what their professional rank is in the Scrum community.
There is an algorithm that calculates the Professional Score. There are a lot of factors affecting the score. This algorithm is being improved continuously. Here, we show you what factors affect your score and how you can improve it. Factors are divided into two main categories:
The Professional Score uses a point system. With each endeavor you do, you get some points. Then your total earned points will be matched by the related score. See the following table:
|Minimum Required Points||0||10||50||200||500||900||1,500||3,000||6,000||+10,000|
|Share a post
(video, photo, text, infographic, …)
|1||For each post you will get 1 point.|
|People’s rate on your post||1||
Each person can rate your posts through a 1-5 rate range. If you only get rates of 4 or 5, you will get 1 point. Otherwise (for rates 1, 2, or 3) you will not get a point. So, try to post really valuable subjects.
Example: If 10 people see one of your posts as valuable and all of them give it a rate of 5, you will get 10 points for that post based on the earned rates.
|Refer a friend||3||
Invite a friend to join the platform and build their own professional brand. Once they sign up on the platform, you will get your points.
|Attending to an accredited Scrum training course
(Courses of Scrum.org, Scrum Alliance, …)
|Based on the following tables||By adding your attended classes, other people can see how you invest in your self-improvement. In addition, you improve your Professional Score.|
|Getting an accredited Scrum certification
(Certificates from Scrum.org, Scrum Alliance, …)
|Based on the following tables||By adding your certificates, other people can see how you invest in your self-improvement. In addition, you improve your Professional Score.|
We sum all your earned points through all contribution and self-improvement factors which will be your total earned points. Then your Professional Score will be determined by matching your total earned points to the Professional Scores (see Professional Score table).
Note: We are using a double-sided platform business model (One side is for Scrum trainers and the other one is for Scrum practitioners). All of us know that Scrum trainers pass a rigorous process to be authorized to teach accredited Scrum training courses. So, their Professional Score starts from 5.
In addition, Scrum practitioners’ Professional Score starts from 1.
We always try to improve the algorithm based on continuous inspection and adaptation. However, we aim to encourage people to work in both categories. Contribute to building a better Scrum world and improving themselves. If you work continuously in both directions, you are an effective Professional who deserves to be seen more.
|Attended Class||PSM||PSM II||PSPO||PSPO-A||APS-SD||PAL-E||PAL-EBM||APS||SPS||PSK||PSU||PSMPO|
|Earned Certificate||PSM I||PSM II||PSM III||PSPO I||PSPO II||PSPO III||PSD I||PAL I||PAL-EBM||SPS||PSK I||PSU I|
If you are a PST (Professional Scrum Trainer), for each course that you are authorized to teach, you earn some points.
