Adding value to Scrum projects as a Project Manager isn't easy. The common Scrum tenor is that the role "Project Manager" shouldn't exist, not in title and even less so in spirit. However, reality is that PMs or roles with traditional project management responsibilities are still more prevalent than agile servant-leader Scrum Masters or Kanban Flow Managers.

You will leave the session with hands-on techniques that you can implement the very next day to improve the way you and your team works!
