Scrum Master vs. Project Manager

Similarly to how a Project Manager is the central authority of a traffic light junction, the ScrumMaster can be seen as the “RoundaboutMaster”

Project Managers are the lubricant that makes projects run. According to the PMI, the role of the PM is the director of action, the key role responsible for delivery of the project. But how does that role change as agile practices are introduced, and a pool of resources manipulated by PMs becomes a swarm of dedicated agile teams? We’ve often struggled to explain the difference.

As agile coaches we are tempted to give the irresponsible response that agile teams “don’t need project management” or agile companies “don’t do projects”. While true, the answer is uninspired and unhelpful ...

Money Can't Buy You Agile

The article published in the October issue of MQ - Management und Qualität (Management and Quality) shows that Agile methods cannot be "bought" but you learn your way to them.  The transition to agile methods will not only change the processes in the company, but also the attitude of all participants: teams get more responsibility and the management style changes from "Command & Control" to "Agile Leadership". To implement these changes successfully and sustainably, we need a targeted, role-based coaching.
