Topic: Who’s on First?: The roles of Project Manager and Scrum Master

speaker mclain alicia r

Many companies today are moving to Agile to accelerate delivery, to improve their ability to manage changing priorities and to increase productivity.  Most companies move to Scrum and with that comes the three new roles, Product Owner, Scrum Master and Team. 

The Scrum Guide gives little guidance on these three roles with no reference to the role of the Project Manager.  So, who is supposed to be doing what, when and to whom?

The lack of role clarity can be a serious impediment to organizational success, yet most companies don’t take the time on their Agile journey to break it down.

In this presentation you will learn:

  • What is Agile?
  • The Agile /Project Management Journey Lines
  • Key overlapping functions of the Scrum Master and Project Manager

How the Scrum Master and Project Manager can be successful together
