With the adoption of Agile, many groups wonder whether functional managers are required any more. Even with self-organizing teams, functional managers are still an integral part of Agile, and their role has transformed into more of a coach than ever. This talk explores what I have seen as a traditional software manager and my experiences in leading Agile teams as their functional manager. It delves into the nuances that I have found that are required of this new form of manager, and how this needed leadership meshes well with and elevates self-directed teams.
