Scrum models have clustered within the boundaries of product development and the limited world of development teams. Nonetheless, any Scrum adoption cannot be isolated from the rest of organization’s processes and structures. A typical example of this integration is with project related world. This study firstly focuses on the need for clarifying Scrum concepts to make ground sufficient in order to integrate Scrum world with project related notions. Secondly, it elaborates on project concept and project manager role in the world of Scrum, with additional and special interest on scalable solutions. The study also deals with the notions around the project (program and portfolio) for a full integrity in this context. In order to unite these two spaces, alongside the descriptions provided in Scrum Guide, the study is extended by using COBIT framework and PMBOK Guide through identification, description and evaluation of general roles and structures related to and in relation with the notion of project, which is not included in Scrum but potentially interacted with Scrum structures.
