    Hi Alhad,

    Some observations. All the points mentioned in Trust slide, are not only important for Distributed Agile Teams, but co located agile teams as well. What extra is required for distributed teams?

    You have included Sprint Review in the same slide. Are you thinking about other ceremonies as well, as definitely other ceremonies also give chances of more interaction which leads to more trust.

    Are technical Excellence and Technology two separate entities? How they contribute towards trust?

    Giving suggestions in Sprint Review is a great idea, but why to wait for that long? It should happen on daily basis

    I also feel in 45 minutes, you might not be able to do justice with all the topics
