The Agile Enterprise: Project Roles and Responsibilities in Agile
Agile found its way into project delivery with many certifications attempting to define various agile roles, some of them project-related. Although the Manifesto for Agile Software Development is against specialization in an Agile Team, all the traditional roles have become "Agile" by sticking the "Agile" label to the old job title: for example, Agile Project Manager, Agile Tester, Agile Business Analyst, "Agile" Scrum Master and the "Agile" Coach. Most Agile frameworks, like Scrum, Crystal, and XP, were conceived by developers for a small team of software developers, and the Project Manager role is usually omitted. Unlike 'specialized' Agile Project Manager certifications, PMI's Project Management Professional (PMP)® remains the industry benchmark for the Project Manager role, providing an increased focus on Agile and Hybrid practices without compromising the knowledge required to manage projects that can't or won't use Agile practices. This webinar is a comparative analysis of various roles in a project that uses agile practices and how various project roles should change to adapt to a new way of delivering projects.
