  15. 15. Can you solve the problem without a meeting? If your answer is yes, don’t add a “but” to it. Just solve the problem without a goddamn meeting. -- Molood Ceccarelli
  16. 16. Molood Ceccarelli AGILE TRANSFORMATION & REMOTE WORK CULTURE TOOLS & PROCESSES OVER INDIVIDUALS AND INTERACTION COMPREHENSIVE DOCUMENTATION OVER WORKING SOFTWARE
  17. 17. Molood Ceccarelli Meetings, meetings and more meetings instead of creating working valuable software • First we meet to create the product vision, roadmap, product backlog • Then we meet to make changes to product vision, roadmap, backlog • And to continuously reprioritize what is on the backlog • We update the ”status” of our work every day in the tool • We also meet to tell each other that we have changed the status • We use chat and comments in our tool to synchronize • Somehow despite how much we meet and communicate and synchronize, our architecture keeps getting worse and we keep introducing more bugs. • It could be because we don’t have enough time to write test code, but we do have a CI pipeline, so there’s that. • We sometimes must have a “code freeze” or “release” to do some more integration testing, yet our software crashes often. • What’s penetration testing?! Security….hmmmm I don’t know who takes care of that. • But we have very valuable retrospective meetings. • Our action points are usually “have a meeting to improve the way we run one of our meetings such as planning” • But you know it’s really difficult to do anything well because we are a distributed team in different time zones. We always blame remote work or remote workers when we do not communicate effectively
  18. 18. • Stop trying to copy collocated behaviors. • You must think and behave differently in distributed teams. • Invest in your Ops, security, CI/CD pipeline, automation (test, deploy, etc), and create enough documentation, and make your meetings valuable. • Improve the processes that empower individuals to communicate.

  22. 22. Molood Ceccarelli •Collaboration is NOT a Goal. It’s a means to a goal. •Organizations don’t collaborate. People within and among organizations do. •Work Together with your customer instead of making fixed-scope fixed-deadline contracts. •Define your goal and achieve it together. •Experiment and learn.
