Ok, as far as I see, this discussion has been brought a little earlier than
Dru, the issue here is that we don't know exactly all that is being planned
as business, because it hasn't been released. So, we don't know what are the
plans for the BCG. So far, we knew there was going to be a certification,
but now there is a whole bunch of things we are in the dark, like the
Training Centers, trainers certifications, and now the ethics code.
So, what are the plans? Could we have at least some of the topics that will
be on it?
Also, about biz plans: a certification group for sure would have a biz plan
before the cert plan! It's so obvious. The only problem here is only that
it's still not public, so we feel like shooting in the dark, asking dumb
questions, discussing matters that have already been solved, and all that.
oh, just to make it official: I'm against the code of ethics, specially
because I don't know how we could be controlling that, and it could be used
to black list IT professionals for obscure reasons...
