For years, we've heard "agile is for collocated teams. Don't do agile if you can't all be together. Without close daily interactions, agile cannot work.” Or, can it? With changes in technology and broader agile adoption, we are seeing organizations of dispersed teams where agile not only works, but thrives. But does it work the same way as when everyone is together? Can we truly be agile and be spread over time zones and locations?
Here are some of the challenges to explore: - What are the limitations and downsides of distributed Agile, and what tools and ways of working can address those? What are the advantages? How can we set things up to maximize the advantages and minimize the limitations?
  • Does a distributed agile approach encourage non-optimal structures...or can it help create new effective organizations ?
  • Are we asking professionals to adapt too quickly with new collaborative behaviors AND remote dynamics … or does learning the former overcome the latter?
  • How are cultural and language barriers impacted by both face-to-face work (e.g., offensive body language) or remote work (e.g., removing human touch). Or can one kind of work help avoid the challenges of the other?
  • Can working asynchronously and remote actually help some type of work and certain types of workers? Is this a new area for the introverts to thrive? What compromises are they not seeing, and what evolutions are we not seeing? Help us discover how distributed agile is an obstacle to overcome and a new way of working. Join us in this Audacious Salon.
