I am a Project Manager. Is there a spot for me in Scrum?
Predavanje je v angleškem jeziku.
I am Peter, a project manager, and I have been working in the company's PMO office for years. I manage the entire lifecycle of projects, from contract to delivery. I am accountable for project execution and communication with stakeholders. I manage the development team's work, distribute tasks to team members, and monitor their progress. I report to the board of directors. Now, my company is starting an agile transition and implementing Scrum. I am concerned about my carrier since there are no project managers in Scrum. From my perspective, the new process feels all too agile, with no long-term planning, monitoring, and reporting. I am not sure that I will like Scrum. Will I lose my job? Or is there a place in Scrum where I could fit in and make the best use of my current knowledge and experience? Could I maybe keep on working as a project manager outside Scrum? Join us in this session and help Peter find the right spot for him in Scrum!
