Enterprise distributed Agile model sounds very hard and complicated. In fact yes, it is not easy but there are ways to make it work. When we joined Yahoo Web Search team, we inherited distributed team working in traditional development style where SE and QE located in Bangalore, Engineers in Taiwan, Product in US. With Agile transition including location strategy and management collaboration, our team was able to come up with a model where we can release minimum of six days in a week with more than twenty hours of work hours a day between US and TW office.
This session offers ingredients and recipe for successful and sustainable transition. We will use example to shows how to identify ‘symptoms’ for areas of improvement and how to come up with the mutual agreement and process which keeps everyone engaged.
