This talk was held at the Trifork, GOTO Night in Zurich on October, 14 2013.
In few industries the benefits of new, agile forms of working were more visible than in software development. Strict deadlines, highly intelligent knowledge workers, and products that – if not built correctly – were very vulnerable to errors. The philosophy of Agile offered many answers and solutions to improve working methods in software development. Management, however, was hardly addressed.
The Scrum Framework does not define the role “Manager”. Instead Scrum is about self-organisation and teams, but there is not even a team lead. Many people draw the conclusion that we should get rid of managers and officially state them as the main obstacle when introducing Agile into the organisation. Are they right or completely wrong? In this talk Mischa Ramseyer takes a closer look at the role and duties of Management in Agile Organisations so that you are able to answer the question “Do we need Management in Scrum” by yourself.
