Contrary to common belief, (fully) distributed team can actually make it easier to adapt an agile approach to software development.

Compared with the co-located group, a distributed team experiences what I call a shift in visibility. The hours spent in the office no longer count, therefore more focus is placed on actual work done and business value delivered. If your team suffers from poor communication or endless meetings, working remotely will make this even more conspicuous.

    • 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 http://bob.mcwhirter.org/blog/2010/09/13/remote-worker-distributed-team/ |
    • 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 |
