The Dark Side of Agile Projects
Agile frameworks do not mention the role of the project manager because they were designed for product management, not project management. However, the PM role is required when the organization approves a project that must be completed within a certain period of time and below a certain budget. Professional PMs are responsible, among other things, for the agile project to end on time and on budget, meeting stakeholders’ requirements.
Small and Frequent Project Status Reports
Small and frequent project status reports should be a source of interaction with project stakeholders. PMPeople enhances project reporting, making quite easy for project managers to produce project status reports, and for stakeholders to read them and provide feedback.
Roles in the Project Economy
In the project economy, people have the skills and capabilities they need to turn ideas into reality, and organizations deliver value to stakeholders through successful completion of projects, delivery of products, and alignment to value streams.
