Should A Project Manager Become A Scrum Master?

June 22, 2021
This question comes up often: “I am a project manager and our company is moving to agile or Scrum, does that mean I will now become a Scrum Master?” In response, we hesitate and then give the unwelcomed answer of “It depends.” And it really does depend. The Scrum Master role is deep and wide. Scrum Masters need to support their teams while working with the rest of the people in their organizations to build awareness and enable greater agility. A Scrum Master’s job is not to manage a project or deliver status reports — duties that people associate with the role of a traditional project manager. As a matter of fact, Scrum Masters may not get involved in status reports at all. In this webinar, Eric Naiburg, COO, Scrum.org, will discuss the potential move to an agile way of working, the role of the Scrum Master, and what that means for people currently in the role of Project Manager.
