Many folks become leads, project managers, program managers, scrum masters, or functional managers by chance. Someone assigns them the management of a group, team, product, project, program, or scrum because of their area of expertise while not taking into account they have never had any management education or training. And without the specific skills and techniques necessary to clarify objectives, avoid serious errors of omission, and eliminate costly mistakes, the whole enterprise can quickly become a recipe for disaster. But for those without the formal background who want to become acquainted with the discipline of Project Management, Program Management, Agile Scrum, Management and Leadership, help has indeed arrived.
