What is the role of management in Agile and Scrum? Traditional management is not part of the Scrum Framework and it is not defined there. In addition, the teams are self organizing, so is the manager role unnecessary then? The answer is most likely not, as the traditional manager takes on the HR responsibilities for the team, makes sure that the team has the right capabilities and making sure people can continue to learn, develop and grow. The scrum master coaches the team, but he or she is not responsible for the performance management of the team members. The traditional, line manager is involved in performance appraisals, approval of trainings, new hiring requisitions and a number of other traditional duties which are are outside of the Agile & Scrum Framework scope but needed in the organization.
