#SGUS: Jeff Sutherland: What does Management Do Under Scrum

Jeff Sutherland at the Scrum Gathering in Orlando. What is the role of management in a Scrum environment:
  • Have a business model that works 
  • Ensure that the resources are present to achieve the business model 
  • Eliminate impediments - this should get board level attention
  • Challenge the teams 
 The role of "management" changes: it should become leadership.
