Software project management is defined as the activities required to plan and lead software projects. Historically, IT projects have identified a single person to play this role. Many forms of Agile have eschewed the project manager role and instead distribute the activities associated with project management across the core team, including the product owner, the development team and the Scrum Master. In Agile, project management is dead…at least as a single role that leads, directs, controls and administers a project team because those roles are distributed to the team. This webinar provides an overview of how these three competing constituencies can work together to control and shape project execution.
