Remote Work and Distributed Teams

The Future of Agile in a Hybrid World

Working remotely is not a constraint, it’s an opportunity!​

Staying in sync with coworkers has never been more important, yet how do you handle all the normal day-to-day things like meetings and tracking tasks? What about basic communication? We all know that Agile teams value face-to-face interaction. How do we accomplish this in the current environment?

You may not know this, but Agile Alliance is a virtual organization. We work remotely every day. Our member community has written and spoken about this topic and we have assembled these event sessions, experience reports, blog posts, and more for you below. We are also working to provide you with new resources as they become available.

Please share with your colleagues and peers. Feel free to reach out with any questions – we’re all in this together.
