The Scrum Master manages Sprints and conduct daily scrums within the application so that progress and risks can be monitored and controlled. The Product Owner ensures the team members work on the tasks providing the highest business values to the end-users and organizations. The Project Manager is empowered to effectively initiate, plan, monitor and control, as well as report progress on its projects. The Resource Manager can view and easily report on resource assignments, current and future loading, and work with the Scrum Master and Project Manager to make any adjustment as need be.
