Pete Deemer, our Business Manager at the Scrum Training Institute, has written an excellent article on the role of the manager in Scrum.
- Like me, you probably get asked the following question quite often: "What's the role of a manager in Scrum? I'm a manager, and since I'm not mentioned in the definition of the Scrum roles, and the team is self-organizing, does that mean I'm supposed to just... disappear?"
- I recently wrote a short guide to answering this question. A couple other CST's have stumbled upon it in the last few weeks and emailed me to say they found it quite useful, and I wanted to share it with the full group as well. If you have any feedback or suggestions, I'd love to hear. You can download the guide at: Manager 2.0: The Role of the Manager in Scrum http://scrumti.com/home/
