Talk at Agile Jakarta, July 2016. I discussed the top 5 problems I see with distributed teams:
1. Us versus them
2. Culture is a mystery
3. We keep teams in the dark
4. We stop communicating
5. The black box

I shared some solutions on leadership level. Plus practical tools and tricks to make distributed teams work better.
