Agile Project Managers - Oxymoron?Andy Bacon
schedule 2 years agoSold Out!
The role of project manager is viewed by many Agilists as an oxymoron, and students fresh out of a CSM course will certainly tell you that there is no project manager on a Scrum team. Why then do organizations that claim to "do Agile" or even "be Agile" continue to have roles for these old school command and control relics? Why are companies hiring and government RFPs asking for "Agile Project Managers?" Do project managers have a place in an Agile environment? This session will explore this topic through interactive discussions on defining what an Agile project manager is, project managers as Scrum Masters or Product Owners, and common pitfalls of adding a PM into the mix.
