The purpose of the Agile Project Management track is to help people learn the skills, techniques and mindset needed to orchestrate a team effort, collaborate with stakeholders, and adjust the team's work for maximum effect.
We are careful in this track to separate the skills of project management from the job title "Project Manager". In many settings using agile development, there is no one with that title, possibly the entire team is self-organizing or self-managing.
Even in self-organizing or self-managing teams, however, it is beneficial for one or more people on the team to have skills in helping the team work more cohesively, communicate more effectively with their stakeholders, and reflect and adjust on their working habits.
This track is currently under development. The following shows the current state of the discussion. We will post more as specific topic areas and learning object clusters solidify.
