The concept of the Agile Project Manager is almost universally accepted, at least in IT projects; although there is no Agile Project Management Methodology. Traditional approaches like PMBoK and PRINCE2 had always the capability to use techniques that are part of the Agile delivery: incremental and iterative development, early delivery of increments of the project, multi-functional teams, inspect and adapt, etc.

For the past 15 years, the Scrum Master and Project Manager roles have coexisted well, especially in IT projects. From the very technical role that was part of the Software Development Team, the Scrum Master evolved into a new organizational role sometimes with a well-defined job description and with responsibilities that transcended the technical background from which it originated. Although the role was defined in the Scrum framework, the Scrum Master role is now present in other frameworks

The Agile Enterprise: What is different in an Agile Project?

PREMIUM webinar

The concept of the Agile Project Manager is almost universally accepted, at least in IT projects; although there is no Agile Project Management Methodology. Traditional approaches like PMBoK and PRINCE2 had always the capability to use techniques that are part of the Agile delivery: incremental and iterative development, early delivery of increments of the project, multi-functional teams, inspect and adapt, etc. Most Agile frameworks, like Scrum, were created by and for software development and are challenged when it comes to complex projects where Risk Management, Stakeholder Management, Procurement, and Financial Management skills and knowledge are crucial for a successful delivery. The role of Project Manager is as important as ever for the success of any initiative defined by scope, time, and budget - otherwise a project. Agile may or may not be the best delivery approach, but if it is, how is an Agile project different ? This webinar is trying to answer this question using real life examples from IT and Business projects.

Project Manager or Scrum Master? Is there a future for both roles?

For the past 15 years, the Scrum Master and Project Manager roles have coexisted well, especially in IT projects. From the very technical role that was part of the Software Development Team, the Scrum Master evolved into a new organizational role sometimes with a well-defined job description and with responsibilities that transcended the technical background from which it originated. Although the role was defined in the Scrum framework, the Scrum Master role is now present in other frameworks; there are many training courses and certifications available from organizations other than scrum.org and scrum alliance with different views on the skills and responsibilities required of the Scrum Master. This provides additional evidence that the role is evolving beyond what the Scrum Guide authors intended. The Project Manager role has also changed since the Agile Manifesto publication and the adoption of Agile delivery frameworks. This evolution is mainly due to a dynamic business environment, more geographically distributed workforce, and, last but not least, the digital revolution: cloud, social media, and mobile technology impact how projects are managed and delivered. Some organizations are planning to convert Project Managers to Scrum Masters; in others, the Scrum Masters are encouraged to become Project Managers. This presentation is an assessment of the responsibilities, skills, and knowledge needed for each role and a view of the future of the two roles based on the presenter's experience as a Development Team Lead, Development Manager, Scrum Master, and Project Manager working with Scrum Teams.

Topic Teasers Vol. 122: Can I Say This About Agile?

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: I work in an environment where the scrum version of agile, which is evidently great for some organizations, just doesn’t work. Can I say this about agile, as I know it is the hot, new approach to projects? It’s just that there are some industries where, from what I read about this strategy, it is a great philosophy…but the actual steps to do it don’t quite fit. Is there any alternative to rejecting the whole methodology?
