Description

Working in a distributed setup can be a challenging and demanding experience. Introducing Scrum and Agile does not solve all problems by magic, but requires some extra dimensions to the different practices and principles. Very often it can be difficult to be agile and collaborate across the distance and people tend to fall back in old and more controlling behaviors.

In this session you will hear about recommended solutions to common problems when working with distributed Scrum and Agile. You will be introduced to 9 main patterns for more successful distributed work, which can help create, or improve the distributed setup to avoid many of the common failures. You will also hear how the distributed setup often will impact the Scrum roles, events and artifacts and how you must balance and continuously improve the extra dimensions in each area.

You will also hear about different cases and experience from working with distributed teams between Denmark, Asia and Eastern Europe since 2004.

This talk was created for events at Scrumforum Denmark in Marts 2012 and also done at different danish companies.
