It is rare to come across a team that are following an agile software method such as Scrum or XP by the book. Most teams create their own "mashup" of agile practices to suit their unique situation. This talk highlights what's on offer in the different agile methods, where different agile practices add value and how to go about blending them into your current approach.
Rachel Davies coaches teams in agile software development techniques, such as test-driven development, heartbeat retrospectives and planning with user stories. She is passionate about agile software development because it increases the chance of success projects in the face of complex problems.

Project Manager on Agile projects alongwith ScrumMaster and Product Owner
The responsibilities of ScrumMaster tends to collide with responsibilities of Product Owner. The Product owner is responsible for ROI (Return on investment). The ScrumMaster is responsible for the process.
Many companies have the tendency to cut quality to meet the deadline. Scrum deliberately created two roles of Product Owner and ScrumMaster, so that quietly cutting quality will be difficult.
When organizations have a project manager, with ScrumMaster and Product Owner reporting to him / her, cutting quality quietly on the project becomes easy. It seems that this kind of structure is used by companies that do not wish to change, but want to call their projects Scrum.
To retain creditability and avoid going the SEI CMM route (companies getting certification for marketing and not for process improvement), we need to discourage this type of systems.

Digital whiteboard for iteration tracking?
But the problem that I'm facing, my development team is located offshore in India, whereas I'm in Frankfurt. Do you know a provider of a digital whiteboard? Means an easy way to stick notes and move them around and colorize these?
Thanks to all for any hint...
Re: Digital whiteboard for iteration tracking?
I remember that I read something in the scrum4you community.

When you are from Frankfurt, German should be o.k. for you.
