Is the PM squeezed in the SCRUM?

According to the PMBOK a project is a temporary endeavour undertaken to create a unique product, service or result. But what about Agile, Scrum, Kanban and Dev Ops. How does this fit into the definition of a project and more important what is the role of a PM in these methodologies/ways of working. Do we all need to transfer into Scrum masters, product owners and agile coaches?

There are significant differences between waterfall and agile but also similarities. The workshop goal is to create awareness that project execution and the role of the PM is changing with an agile way of working. Based on a number of example cases, the participants will be challenged to find the differences and how their current experience and knowledge is still of great importance in project execution, whatever methodology is used.
