Scrum Myth: The Scrum Master is a Project Manager

I often get this question when coaching or training organizations new to Scrum: “I’m a project manager. What do I do?”

I’m happy when I get the question; it gives me the opportunity to talk it through. Too many times, people assume or jump to the conclusion that the role of project manager must be the Scrum Master in the Scrum framework.

Software Inventory, Part 2

In part 1 of this blog, we looked at what software inventory is and why it's problematic for business. Basically, software inventory is investment we have made (salary, taxes, benefits, servers, overhead, etc.) for which we are not yet realizing return or benefit (which can only be achieved by release to production use). Inventory is a problem because it ties up capital and we risk the inventory becoming "obsolete"--the user needs change or the technology no longer provides the desired value--producing less return than expected.

How Much Software Inventory Do You Have?

IT Software InventoryWhen I ask this question of people in IT departments, even among senior managers and finance people, I get a variety of responses, such as:

"None. We don't manufacture stuff."

"We have a few servers in a data farm...is that what you mean?"

Or just a blank stare.
