WEBVTT Hello, everyone. My name is Anthony Sequera, and I am thrilled that you are joining us here. We have Chris Ward with us as well. Today, we are going to be discussing leadership and performance on our teams and utilizing Agile. Chris, I am going to throw it right to you to just kind of tell us what it is we'll be delving into in this area of leadership today. Well, you kind of hit a couple of those right there. Just leadership, performance. These are things that any project needs, whether it's an Agile project, whether it's a-- I would say even a predictive project. So what we're going to cover in this particular course-- and remember, this is a part of our series on PMI's Agile-certified Professional. Make sure you watch all the courses if you want to prepare for that exam. But if you want to just learn a little bit about how do I enhance my team, how do I concentrate on leadership skills within the Agile methodologies-- and by the way, that means whether it's Scrum, whether it's XP, DSDM, Crystal, name it, this is going to be a part of it. The nice thing about working with teams in an Agile environment is that the concentration will always be on small, self-organized, self-empowered teams that allow them to quickly adapt to any type of change that comes their way. Now, that's a heck of a lot different, as we all know, from our predictive world that many of us as project managers come from. Now, I don't know where you are in your journey or whether perhaps you already have your PMP, a CAPM, or some sort of project, maybe Project Plus from CompTIA. You might have that experience in project management. And what you're going to see here is going to-- I hate to say it-- fly in the face of what you are used to doing. So Anthony, that's what we're going to be covering. And I'm pretty excited to actually get to do this with my friend, Anthony Sequera, who I have done many, many trainings in the past. But now we get to do one together here. I was going to mention how long we've been friends. And that will just make us both feel very old. So I won't go into that level of detail. But Chris, this sounds really exciting. It really does sound like a course where we're going to be able to take advantage of certification, assistance, and guidance. But even if we're not interested in certification, if we're just really interested in improving our performance in these leadership teams, this is going to be great. Well, let's get started. We've got lots to cover. And we're going to jump in in our very next episode.
