The Role of the Project Manager in an Agile Business

Organizations of all types are adopting agile methods to help manage complex work and improve project delivery. If you’re a Project Manager, you may be wondering: Is an agile approach right for my organization? Do I have a role on an agile team, and if so, what is it? How do I make agile methods work in my context?

During this session, you’ll learn:

  • How Project Managers can have a meaningful role in an agile business
  • What it means to take an adaptive approach to project management
  • Which agile framework may be best for you

About Ann Konkler

Since Ann was introduced to agile values in 2003, she's enjoyed working with people across several industries to help them realize the benefits of an adaptive and collaborative workplace. Her 20+ years of experience includes roles as developer, project manager, PMO manager, training director, and agile consultant. She’s passionate about helping people rediscover joy in their work. Her favorite coaching moments involve the aha factor — like when over a hundred people are engaged in a big room planning event and rather than just note risks or dependencies in each team, people start moving to the middle of the room and commit to tackling the issues together.
