  • People – Rotation, Understand their interest, Willingness to travel, Can we make the right compositionCode base – Move code base to single repository. Synchronize the same code-base in different locations. Similar patterns and neat .Tests – Do we have safety net around each components? Effort needed to get the smoke/critical tests for each componentsKnowledge base – Necessary documentationAre we ready to accept a 40-50% less velocity during 2-3 iterations?
  • HEY…..We are a single team..Explore Team – Combination of resources from different component development teams and skill setSPOC for each component team. SPOC ready to invest sufficient time to help the explore teamAccess rights to different systemsTime-boxed analysis on each componentsAnalyze areas such as CI, Deployment, Tests, Production deployment Identify key resources and arrange for necessary travel for KT between locationsShuffle resources between locations and work along with the team to 2-3 iterationsEncourage frequent communications, in-person communications etc
