This question already has an answer here:
I am on a software project with a project manager that seems to be doing things that are either not adding value, or that the rest of the Agile team could quite easily do themselves. It feels like they are struggling to let go of the traditional waterfall/command and control mindset.
The issue for me isn't so much that I don't know what the project manager should do, I think he should stop micromanaging, but my issue is I don't know how to highlight this in a constructive way without coming across as excessively critical or by hurting his ego by making him feel useless. I want to stop the conflicting approaches in a constructive way that adds value to the project itself.
Does anyone know how I can highlight these issues in a sensible way and bring about an effective transition to a truly Agile project?
