Agile Project Manager | Glossary


The ‘Project Manager’ role and responsibility isn’t allocated to a single individual in the Agile field.  Due to the nature of Agile, the ‘Project Manager’ roles and responsibilities are shared among others working on the project. They can be the Team, Scrum Masters and Product Owner as well. The roles and responsibilities are not rigid according to hierarchy.

Agile projects tend to scale with Agile Project Management. Even when teams grow to incredible large sizes, it becomes necessary to introduce more points of coordination. Hence, larger projects sometimes do contain a centralized role of a ‘Project Manager’. However, the actual Project Management is still distributed to a large degree across the team.
