SCRUM Vs Waterfall

Friends,

I have gone thru substantial theoretical material on SCRUM.

I am a seasoned waterfall PM. Seasoned means I have successfully managed multiple projects/programs with 5M+ budget.

I have the following questions - 

(1) What are the top 3 responsibilities of a SCRUM Project manager that are NOT his responsibilities in Waterfall ?

(2) What are the top 3 deliverables a SCRUM Project Manager produces that he will NOT product if the project was following Waterfall ?

(3) What are the top 3 decisions a SCRUM Project Manager will have to make which he will NOT make if the project was following waterfall ?

Top 3 may be a confusing term. But what I mean by that is "most frequent", "most usual", "most likely to have positive impact on the success of the project".

Scrum Does not have role called Project Manager , it has different approach for doing projects. Here are some videos from my Certified ScrumMaster classes you may find them useful.

Hello,
 
WF assumes the Project Manager should plan the work.
Scrum assumes it is best if the Team plans its own work and re-plans.
 
WF puts most responsibility on the PM.
 
Scrum puts most responsibility on the small dedicated Team.
(WF uses a diffuse work group, with only the PM with clear overall responsibility.)
 
Thanks.
