Very few Agile teams are all together co-located in one place. For most of us there are some barriers – walls at least or oceans at most. We are faced with situation when team is split in few different locations.
Being Agile (building agile team) is obviously harder in such setup – communication is critical and there are tools that can help to make it more effective, but this is not our topic today.
Our topic is more concrete: different tools are used to share information, progress statuses, etc. It can be simple wiki, it can be Google Docs, it can be separate dedicated specialized tool to visualize Scrum or Kanban board (for example).
All tools suck, we will check which suck less.
