Agile Project Management
2018 Chapter Meeting series "Trends In Business Analysis"
AGILE PROJECT MANAGEMENT
As organizations continue to embrace agile, project managers are evolving their role to integrate into project environments with agile teams.
Obviously, ScrumMaster or coach is one role PMs are moving into, but in many instances, the organization’s need for project management exceeds what the traditional agile team provides. Project management activities pertaining to contracting, communication with the larger organization, particularly senior management, and reporting beyond flip charts posted on team walls are all needs that PMs logically fill and that may go unmet.
The hybrid ScrumMaster/PM role is one many are taking on to address the agile team needs as well as the wider organizational need for a more holistic perspective and broader communication of the project.
