Information on how to become more agile in the delivery of projects in the Digital era has been in ample supply, raising important guidelines – and questions – on how organisations should go about setting up fit for purpose agile project structures and teams. Often, at the risk of leading controversial conversations in this regard, industry experts continue to challenge organisations to be even more agile!
One such controversy revolved around the seemingly dimming role of the Project Manager in this new agile way of work. Enter the Scrum Master! Now, it is clear that “agile” and “scrum” have become the new twins on the block, begging the question: Is scrum a requisite for agile project delivery?
Over time, the lines within and around agile have become somewhat blurry, creating confusion for organisations desperately hoping to realize value after adopting some of the many agile principles at their disposal. When the Agile Manifesto first saw the light in February 2001, its aim was to enable a new and improved way of becoming agile with specific reference to the way in which projects are being managed and executed. The undeniable reality is that after navigating the maze of agile methodologies and principles out there, things certainly start to feel a little less agile! It is at this junction that a fusion approach seems to have find its place.
