My Role as an Agile ManagerWhen software development teams move to Agile methods, managers often wonder what their new roles and responsibilities will entail within an Agile environment. Self-organizing Agile teams still need guidance and assistance in achieving goals, however, and managers must support these teams by providing direction, assisting ScrumMasters to remove impediments, and helping program management and business needs fit in to the iterative cycle.
