A few years ago I transitioned from a project management as a youth and family minister to a formal career as a PM in the business community. Key in that transformation was acquiring certification as a Professional Project Manager through Project Management Institute. This robust set of tools is powerful especially for projects with mostly predictable variables.
In that journey I became intrigued with Agile, in particular Scrum, for projects that have a shifting scope with major unpredictable and evolving variables. I have and continue to study Agile practices and recently gained my ScrumMaster certification. I’m introducing Agile concepts in my current role as a PM.
I’m very interested in growing in my Agile knowledge and practice. I’m excited about the impact it can have on education and training, as well as the more recognized benefits to business and IT.
