What is the difference between a Project Manager and a Scrum Master?
PMI Olympia Chapter is excited to welcome Greg Smith to our October dinner meeting to share with us the key difference between a Project Manager and a Scrum Master.
Can one person play both roles? This interactive presentation will cover the responsibilities of both roles, where they overlap, and the personality types that are a good fit for each. We will also discuss real world case studies and how many local companies have addressed the two roles.
