Distributed Teams

Distributed Agile is Hard

|
Visibility Shift
More visible in distributed
setup:
•  Value
•  Communication
•  Trust
|
Like Scrum
“Scrum does not solve your
problems.
It makes them more visible.”

Visibility
Is The First Step
Towards
Improvement

Remote vs. Distributed

My Context

|
My Context

|
Distributed
Setup is
Different
than co-located,
not worse or better
|
Value vs. Presence

|
Presence at
work is not
that visible

|
Value Delivered
More important (and visible!)
than where, how and working
time.

|
Focus On Value – In Practice
•  Notifications
•  Recent changes
•  Continuous
Deployment

|
Communication Challenges

|
Meetings
Distributed meetings
are extremely boring

|
|
Communication Challenges

|
Narrow channel
requires fine-tuned
communication

|
Communication Flexibility
•  Sync vs. async
•  Chat, Call, Push-To-Talk

Flexible => improve constantly

|
Example: Daily Company Meeting
Technical -> Social

•  At first: standard Scrum
•  Now: moods
•  “4-th question”
|
Trust Issues

|
Trust issues
“They’d be browsing
Facebook”
“I have to go in person”

|
Impossible without trust

|
Trust issues
Painfully visible in
distributed environment

|
Building Trust
•  F2F team meetings

•  “4-th question”

•  Retrospectives

|
All in All

|
Visibility Shift
More visible in distributed
setup:
•  Value
•  Communication
•  Trust
