TIP OF THE WEEK

Functional managers have a restricted role within agile teams. In an organization that has transitioned to agile, there is less daily direction required from HR or functional managers. Teams will self-select work packages, with some encouragement from the Scrum Master or PM. The functional managerís role is then one of career guidance, managing ongoing skills development, approving expenses/vacations, handing out promotions, etc. The role becomes focused on the management of the people and not the management of their work.
