Limited Capacity seats available

Agile development isn't any longer considered to work for collocated teams only. Also teams, projects and organizations that are distributed are asked to focus on delivering value. Yet, with Agile’s emphasis on -among other things- face-to-face communication this seems like a contradiction. So the question arises, how to adhere to the Agile principles when applying them in a distributed environment.
In this course attendees will learn about the key success factors for distributed teams. Participants will understand that also distributed teams can benefit from a value system and from principles that are beneficial for small teams. In fact the two trends - distribution in terms of globalization and Agility - can even complement each other.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Learn how teams can be Agile in distributed environments
  • Understand the importance and limits of trust
  • Understand what kind of communication and collaboration ensure a team’s Agility in a distributed environment
  • Recognize the opportunities and challenges different cultures provide
