In this episode Derek Champagne, CEO of The Artist Evolution, interviews Alma Abreu.

Alma Abreu specializes in helping businesses become more agile. She is the founder of 360 Agile Pro. Agile Project Management training and coaching can be very expensive, and is typically used by large companies
with big budgets allowing them to hire consultants in the technology space. 360 Agile Pro wants to make this service easily available and affordable to small businesses and startups with online training programs
and coaching at reasonable rates.

Due to the trend of agency owners being too involved in the day-to-day of their business, there’s a need to train their teams on Project Management. Agile is a good framework for this training, because teams learn to be self-organizing and self-managing, allowing the business owner to get out of the business, automate their service delivery, have better work/life balance, while scaling their company.
