Software development for most enterprises is a global operation. The agile movement got its start with small collocated teams. Sometimes we have that luxury, but more frequently teams are distributed and often distributed across multiple locations and time zones. Todd’s current organization is scattered across 10 different development sites in 6 different countries. At a prior global organization he faced similar challenges. Even if you are only split between 2 locations there are significant challenges to effective agility. Join Todd as he shares several direct experiences and lessons learned in working with globally distributed teams.
