What are some of the challenges I will face when working with a project manager?

In a perfect world, your entire company embraces #agile values and principles, and each department seamlessly integrates with #businessagility to produce a great working place that dominates the market with innovation and exciting new products.

In reality, there is often a bridge that needs to be built between the old style of waterfall style #projectmanagement and the newer #scrum and #agile way of working.

This means you're going to work with #projectmanagers as well as senior management and leadership who still embrace the old way of working.

For many people, change is incredibly hard and you will find that individuals and teams cling to the way things have always been done in the past.

That can create problems for a #scrummaster who is trying to instill #agile values and principles into a working #scrumteam and integrate that team's work with other parts of the organisation who still operate in a traditional waterfall style of #projectmanagement.

So, what do you do? What are some of the challenges you will face as a scrum master when you are working with a project manager?

In this short video, John McFadyen walks us through some of the challenges you will experience when working with a project manager and how to overcome those challenges.

John has worked on some of the highest-performing #scrum teams in the world as both a scrum master and #agilecoach.

He has also worked at the coalface of some of the UK and Europe's largest, most complex #agiletransformations.

He's learned a thing or two about working in large organisations that straddle traditional styles of working with more #agile styles of working. His insight and recommendations are invaluable to new scrum masters trying to work their way around common roadblocks in legacy-driven organisations.
