New Course: Agile Project Management with Target Process

When I took over the WLC Project, we were using the Wiki and Excel to manage our many to do lists. Soon we reached the limits of Excel and needed a proper tool to effectively manage the many stories, make the information available at multiple locations, and keep track of our progress. After an evaluation, we chose Target Process, and have been happily using it ever since.

So now that I am independent, I checked out TP and discovered that they don't offer any courses yet, a need which I have set out to fill.
Agile Project Management with Target Process
