nibor5129128dThis is where scrum, with a real, dedicated scrum master, can be useful. Unfortunately real, dedicated scrum masters are rarer than hen's teeth
Voxera10622128d@soull00t the thing is, with scrum all your time should be managed through the scrum process even if some of the projects are not.
Or they need to give a clear time limit that scrum owns.
Anything else is just going to be messy, and no, it should not be your job to decide which things to prioritize, you most likely do not have enough info for that.
Sure, estimates and telling how much you can squeeze in is your part, but not the picking and choosing, unless its all in a free for all backlog you can choose from.
magicMirror9501128dChoose a random ticket, and work on it. When they ask you "who told you to work on that" - just say the other guy approved it. PM and manager have to talk to each other at that point. Or not. If they don't - then you can do whatever you want. If they do, then the ticket priority will get sorted, and the New PM will get a kick to the face.
