Where is the Manager Role in Scrum?
DECEMBER 20, 2018
The Scrum Framework defines three distinct roles; the Product Owner, the Development Team and the Scrum Master. The scrum guide does elude to Stakeholders, but does not mention anything about managers, executives and leaders. Scrum dogmatists then profess that there should be no managers, or scrum has no mangers. Where are managers in Scrum and do we need them? Remember Scrum is a framework with a strong focus on building complex products.
