Course Overview Hi, my name is Chuck Cobb. I'm the author of the Project Managers Guide to Mastering Agile. That will be the third book I've published to date on agile project management, and I've also published two earlier books on business excellence. Agile requires a different approach for managing projects. In this course, I want to focus on several key areas of difference. These include risk management, metrics, and stakeholder management. We will also discuss agile contracts, which is a special case of stakeholder management. Here's an overview of the modules in this course. We're going to start with an in‑depth discussion of agile risk management, then we're going to talk about agile metrics, and finally we're going to talk about stakeholder management and agile contracts. This course is part of an overall curriculum for agile business management that consists of three learning paths. This course is the fourth of four courses in the Mastering Agile Business Management learning path. The goal of this learning path is to help prepare business people to take a leadership role in an agile project as a product owner or a position of equivalent responsibility. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn agile business management with the Understanding Agile Risk Management, Metrics, Stakeholder Management, and Agile Contracts course at Pluralsight.
