How To Make Sense Of Your Role As A Project Manager or Sponsor On An Agile Project

Thursday 10:40am - 11:10am, ITP Conference (ITP 1 Room)

As more organisations adopt Agile and allocate people with traditional IT functions onto their Agile projects, the natural question arises – where do I fit?

At Equinox IT we particularly see this with the Project Manager role as they move onto projects that also have roles of Scrum Master and Agile Coach. Are all three roles needed? What are the boundaries? Should they be combined? Where do I fit?

The goal of this presentation is to help Project Managers understand where they fit within Agile projects and to also help leaders understand how Agile changes project planning, management, reporting and governance.

The presentation will highlight key principles we often forget about Agile projects, cover how Project Managers, Scrum Masters and Agile Coaches can and should work together, explore how Agile processes complement or replace typical reporting and planning frameworks, and discuss what Agile projects mean for the way we approach governance.
