Why we have so many managers in our organization. You don’t know? Let’s explore why? One of the biggest reason is the merger and acquisition. The company not only acquire business but also acquire people. We can’t do much about it. What else?

2nd reason to resolve dependencies, conflict and help the team to stay focused on commitment. Seriously? I usually see four kinds of bottlenecks in the software development life cycle and organization hire managers to resolve those bottlenecks.

  1. Requirement management and prioritization with multiple stakeholders
  2. Allocation of work to various component team
  3. Managing dependencies within a different component team
  4. Integrating code of various component team and releasing to production
So what managers will do when above work gets distributed between 3 different scrum roles? Yes, managers can choose to play any of these roles. Anything else?

Join Our interactive one-day Certified LeSS Basics Course is a brief introduction to the LeSS Framework, principles, and rules. What about manager working as capability builders?
