Agile for Distributed Teams

If you work in an agile distributed team, you’ve probably been told to reduce face-to-face meetings, limit in-person collaboration, and produce more documentation. That means the way agile distributed teams work can contradict the Agile Manifesto, which wasn’t originally designed to work with distributed teams.

In fact, the manifesto encourages “individuals and interactions” and “face-to-face conversations.” Now more than 20 years later, over 80% of software products are developed using an agile mindset. Yet, many agile teams choose to work remotely. This audio-only course takes a realistic look at how to square this circle.

Instructor Doug Rose shows you how to improve your collaboration without getting overloaded with meetings, messages, and emails. He explains how to avoid hybrid solutions that adopt the worst practices from both agile and deterministic approaches, and explains how the best defense against adopting bad practices is a deeper understanding of the benefits of embracing a more agile mindset.
