About the Program 
This workshop builds on the specific roles and responsibilities of the Project Manager in a traditional environment that can be easily adapted in an Agile environment.  In particular, we will explore what skills and behavioral changes are necessary and how to effectively manage an Agile project, including both specific Agile methods and hybrid models.

This course also supports learning requirements for Agile and Scrum certifications from various organizations such as PMI-ACP, PSM I, and PSPO I.
