To help you identify resources and navigate the challenges facing your suddenly distributed team, we’ve gathered a panel of experts to share their thoughts on the current work environment for a virtual roundtable.

As companies around the world, including Apple, Google, Twitter, and Amazon, instruct their employees to work remotely in light of the spread of coronavirus, Agile teams are having to quickly change their routines to maintain productivity. Core team activities ranging from maintaining a Kanban board to facilitating standups to running effective retrospectives must be restructured to meet the needs of a remote team.

You’ll leave the webinar with tips for managing your suddenly distributed team, tools and ideas for giving “them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done,” and other ideas for maintaining productivity through the disruption.
