You will not want to miss this meeting! Jesse Fewell, Certified Scrum Trainer from Washington, D.C, will be speaking on how the traditional role of a Project Manager fits within Agile projects.
Project Managers comprise the single largest category of agile practitioners that are actively engaged in the industry, however, there is no clear consensus on the role of project manager within the Agile community. Viewpoints range from: • The PM is complete waste. • The PM is a necessary part-time helper. • The PM is a crucial communicator and facilitator.
So who’s right? This interactive session will seek to address these questions about who is good, who is bad, why they are, and who says so.
Speaker background information:
- Awareness of the differences in the role of traditional project manager vs. Agile team roles
- Actionable advice, coaching and insights from Agile Project Management experts and colleagues on how to make the transition
