Are You Ready to Scale Agile? 

You are an Agile evangelist. You have championed the shift to Agile at your organization and have coached several teams successfully. Your organization is delivering quality product faster to your internal and external customers. But there's still a struggle to coordinate across different parts of the organization.

Does a Project Manager fit into an Agile world?

By Marcelo Garza on Sep 18, 2020 10:15:00 AM

Project managers have a wide range of responsibilities when working on a project: they are in charge of planning the project, creating a schedule and timeline, executing each phase, managing budgets, serving as the liaison among all stakeholders, and also troubleshooting and maintenance in addition to other activities.

It's no secret that here at Praecipio Consulting, we love Atlassianwe love Agile, and we especially love using Atlassian tools to Agile ends.
