Creating Successful Distributed Agile TeamsNew
Are you part of an agile team that’s distributed or dispersed around the world? We’ve seen many of these teams and they have trouble “being agile.” Their off-the-shelf agile approach doesn’t fit with their time zones: the planning is impossible, the code and tests never stay quite clean enough, and someone often feels excluded from their retrospectives and other collaborations. The “standard” approaches just don’t seem to work for these teams---where the team members are and how they work. In this workshop, join experienced agile coaches, Johanna Rothman and Mark Kilby, as they explore the principles of successful agile teams. They’ll show you how to understand the type of your teams and how to translate the principles into concrete practices. They also explore how to visualize your team’s distribution in seeing their flow and value delivery. And they’ll wrap things up describing effective virtual workspaces for your distributed agile teams. In the end, you’ll learn how to create an agile approach and culture that works for your distributed team, dispersed customers, and your organization.
