  • Take a deeper dive into how requirements and quality assurance are approached differently in Agile frameworks 
  • Understand the role of leadership in Agile, and the paradigm shift Agile brings for project vs. product, individual vs. team approach, and management vs. leading 
  • Examine the role of “Agile Coach,” the mindset, and the behaviors a coach models while serving a team 
  • Study advanced methods for teams, team dynamics, and what metrics can be used to help teams understand where they are in their Agile journey.
