Keith Richards, CEO of AgileKRC, Lead Author of PRINCE2 Agile and LEad Author for AgilePM/DSDM (2007), looks at the two approaches to project management in an agile context. As well as guidance on selecting the most appropriate methodology, Keith examiines the strengths and weaknesses of each approach, and looks at the best way to run projects using agile, no matter what approach you are using.
At agileKRC we regularly get asked about these two frameworks, so we have put together some guidance that we hope will help people with their decision.

Do we need Project Managers anymore now that we have Scrum? Is the Scrum Master a Project Manager by another name? Do the roles overlap? Can we combine them? At agileKRC we are finding that these are still very common questions to many. Surprisingly these questions are still being asked by many mature organisations who have been practising agile for many years now. This webinar recording looked at the differences between the two roles and how to apply the roles correctly to different situations.
These slides were used during the Webinar on 21st November 2016. It looks at the relationships between the Project Manager and Scrum Master (and also the Team Mananger!). The webinar recording is also available.
