How To Stay Awake During Teleconferences?

1,380 views

Published on

Over the last 9 years I have worked remotely in a corporation, in an international startup and in my own company.

I would like to share my experience and discuss how to approach challenges such as:

* How to apply an Agile/Scrum approach in distributed teams.

* How to hold an effective remote Daily Standup meeting

* How to handle time differences and synchronise work

* What to do when teams are separated not only by distance but cultural differences and completely different attitude towards life

* How to agree on requirements with a client you have never seen

* And finally: How to stay awake during teleconferences ;-)

If these challenges sound familiar, this presentation is for you.
