Agile - The Basic Roles and Beyond...

In Agile, we hear a lot about the roles of the Agile Project Manager (aka, ScrumMaster), Product Owner, and Agile Team. This session will go in-depth into these roles. It will explore how the common titles of developer and QA must now have much more of a team focus and less of a "throw it over the wall" focus.

However, what makes this session unique is that it will go beyond the common roles and into the roles that must interface in some way with the Agile team. For example, "how do Functional or Resource Managers interface with Agile teams?" and "what is the role of Senior Management in an Agile context?" These and other roles will be discussed.

This session will also provide an Agile framework where you can get an idea of where in the process these roles may play a part.
