      Who should take this course?

      Entrepreneurs, Start-up Company Owners, Small-to-Medium Size Company Executives, Development Team Leads, Product Owners, Scrum Masters, and Project and Product Managers new to Agile

      Do I need to currently be working with a development team to benefit from this course?

      No, you can also take this course to gain a better understanding of Agile and then as a product manager know how to apply it at companies in the future.

      Why do I want to learn Agile Project Management?

      Agile Methodologies have increasingly become industry standards as they help with collaboration, communication, effective leadership, management, and process. These days Agile is being used at companies outside the traditional software development scenarios as it is so powerful and can make an immediate positive impact on any project that a team of collaborators work on.

      Also, those who want to get a pilot project or their first team running a successful Scrum will get embedded coaching with this class. You walk away having been successful at building and running an Agile team at your company which makes this course very valuable beyond what you learn in the classroom.

      I still have questions, who can I reach out to?

      You can reach out to Yohei, Program Director at Coloft Academy, to ask further questions about the course by emailing him at yohei@coloft.com.
