Some Agile systems have a project manager role, but we don’t have it in Scrum. We don’t even have a role that is really similar to the project manager. The Scrum Master is only responsible for parts of the project management activities (e.g. process management, and resolving problems), and so is the Product Owner (e.g. prioritizing, and defining the scope). Even the Development Team is responsible for some project management activities (e.g. estimating).
The point is that the project management activities are distributed among all team members in Scrum.
OK, we were discussing the Sprint Planning, which is the first event in every Sprint, when we pick a number of items from the Product Backlog and put them in the Sprint Backlog. Then it’s time to start working! Let’s talk about it next post.
