WEBVTT Welcome back, everyone. My name is Anthony Sequera, and I am here with none other than Chris Ward. And we are going to get started on another section as we are working with Agile. And in this section, we're going to talk about adaptive planning. I think the word adaptive is huge, because, Chris, it seems to me if we're going to be Agile, if we're going to be flexible, we have to be adaptive. And this is going to be an important part. Definitely. And because-- again, this is a new course in our series that we're doing on Agile Certified Professional. You might say, Chris, you've been talking. Anthony, you've mentioned, and of course, in a couple of the others, our good friend Lauren Deal, who's been co-hosting this as well. We've been talking about the fact that predictive, right? Plan, plan, plan, plan some more. You might want to plan a little bit, and then you execute on that plan. And we kept saying, Agile is not that way. You take a little bit of information. You make a small amount of plans. You do a quick execution. You get feedback, and then you keep going through multiple iterations. Well, in this course, we're going to take a look at how planning operates in an Agile methodology. And again, that's across the board from everything, from Scrum, Extreme Programming, Feature Driven Development, Kanban, Crystal, you name it. These are going to be principles that we're going to be looking at, Anthony. And one of the things I love about this, just a little sneak preview, we're even going to play some games, one of which is Anthony's favorite game, Poker. Well, Chris, you know that I'm going to love any time Poker comes in an analogy. I love it. And that often does happen in business, so it's great. Yeah, some really good stuff. Hopefully, you're going to be with us through all of these episodes. Why don't you join us as we go through? Anthony, anything last thing you have to say? No, I'm just super excited for this section of the content. Again, planning on being flexible, something that's going to really, really help us when we're in our project management world with Agile.
