The Agile wave: Project Managers are not dinosaurian after all!
The statements are plenty: Project Managers are not required anymore if we run our projects the Agile way. Just an agile self-steering team with a scrum master and a product owner will do the job. The team continues until the customer is happy, no documentation required. Agile is about continuous adapting and going faster; which indeed is required in this fast moving world! Agile works for IT software development. Just take a Scrum training and add a bit of the SAFe methodology and your software development will thrive!
But is it true? Are all the claims correct? How does Agile relate to SAFe? What is the difference between Agile and Scrum? Can we do Project Portfolio Management with Agile or do we need SAFe or perhaps even something else? And what about the role of the Project Manager? Is it really disappearing?
