comment How much of my time will be taken in planning sprints etc?
Thank you J for an excellent answer. It has given me food for thought. I doubt very much my manager will be directly involved in the team, so I would be doing the lead role (involving mentoring others) and doing all the agile project management tasks. I know the domain pretty well so it will be slightly easier for me to talk to the client to and define requirements. Once again thanks for the answer.

Thank you Davin. Just to add I wont be the product owner. We have someone in place who has that role. Although I know the domain well, the product owner will work with me to use my knowledge in integrating with a new suite of application the company already have. So in all I would have to take on duties of scrum master, architect and trainer of the new developers.

Thanks Bryan. My concern is that the company I work for say they are doing scrum but practically there is not much of it being used (I think they just have meetings in the morning and that is about it). It will be hard to sell to my manager all the areas above you and other have described that I will have to do as their understanding of a manager is a traditional waterfall manager. So when they say I will be doing 20% of my time management related work, I need to understand what they mean by that.

WOW...I think the pessimistic state is what accurately describes the project. I doubt we find candidates with a BDD/TDD background so I will have to get the newbies believing that this is the way to work, whilst at the same time convincing management that newer features won't be out when they except.

There is no scrum master, so I would have to try to do everything at the start to get things going.

Thank you Matthew for your reply, excellently answered,. the breakdown helps immensely. You mentioned obstacles. What sort of areas are you referring to?

Would the time be more or less depending on whether we went agile or not?

I have a meeting with my manager in the second week of Jan so I would know the scope then. From a meeting a month back, his perception of management (they are not doing agile at all currently) was training others, meetings, once a week meeting with developers to see if they have problems etc. My main role is as an architect. I would love to be more but not at the expense of doing less development.
