A good agile project manager combines the role of product owner and facilitator for the project team with the oversight of a traditional project manager. The product owner’s responsibilities include defining goals, steering the team and monitoring their progress, prioritising user requirements (structured as user stories) accordingly.
Traditional project management tasks include organising the roll-out and coordinating the launch with other departments. These are responsibilities that are not covered by the agile methodologies, which solely focus on the implementation aspect.
At TechTalk, all project managers combine traditional project management with the role of product owner, and are qualified in certified in both areas.
