Abstract: Scrum has 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 at fundamental level for the purpose of describing Scrum and its ecosystem with a holistic perspective, 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, descriptions provided in Scrum Guide have been clarified and examined. Then, the study is extended by using COBIT (Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology) framework and PMBOK Guide (A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge) 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. Thus, the work integrates these two parts in a conceptual dimension and at fundamental level.
