Agile implicitly applies pressure for individuals to step-up, own delivery and be accountable.  How do we enable individuals to succeed in an Agile project?  Is it a matter of applying more managers to a project or creating more leaders?  What are the critical roles within a project?  How do we reward success of the project by the individual?  What is the role of the executive, middle manager, project manager and developer and who really matters?  Sue McKinney, Vice President, World Wide Engineering at Pitney Bowes, will discuss the roles within a project based on her Agile transformation experiences at IBM and PBI.
