Charles Cain’s professional bio reads like a Who’s Who of project management. Over the 25+ years that Charles has worked in project management, some of his projects are very recognizable. Enterprise projects include the relocation of CMT Digital and its computer datacenter from the Opryland complex to its present location in downtown Nashville, TN. Other projects include the annual CMT Music Awards event site since it’s inception, the TNNRacing.com website, the original Country Music Hall of Fame site, the original CMA Awards site as well as the original Country.com website back in 1996.
Before it was fashionable, Charles and the developers he was part of on those software development projects operated as agile teams. The business unit and the development team established priorities, created user stories and engaged in sprint planning to achieve the necessary results. Nowhere else was this more apparent than with TNNRacing.com. Each week during sprint planning a new list of priorities was established, release planning was conducted and work began on those priorities and rolled out to production. Impediments that were identified in testing or upon deployment were then identified in the retrospectives at the conclusion of each sprint or release cycle and placed into a product backlog to be corrected in the next sprint cycle.
Upon becoming part of Viacom, Charles has been involved in coaching others in project management methods, setting up Scrum teams and training them in the use of various software packages such as Atlassian Confluence and JIRA, CA Clarity and has coached countless personnel on Agile practices for many years.
Charles is a Certified Scrum Professional (CSP), Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) and Certified Scrum Master (CSM) from the Scrum Alliance, a Project Management Professional (PMP) as well as a Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) from the Project Management Institute.
The 2014 CMT Music Awards are the original fan-voted country music awards event. Charles worked with team members from CMT Digital Media, VMN Editorial Network, Ad Sales, Integrated Marketing, CMT Social Marketing, CMT Corporate Communications and other various groups to facilitate a great user experience for the avid country music fan while ensuring through the innovative use of technology to deliver value for the myriad advertisers that were part of the project

Each year, CMT selects a cadre of artists to honor that have had a spectacular year. The 2011 event site was developed to showcase each artist, complete with an interactive timeline of significant events during the year and social networking capabilities.
