Fixed FAIL Projects - Failure guaranteed!
After having seen multiple projects fail, I was intrigued to research on if there are any patterns to avoid.
Customers dint clearly define what they value most and Vendors dint ask.
Who do you blame?
Customers find it easy to blame Vendors while Vendors fall back on the signed documents and dont shy away either from the blame game.
When both Customers and Vendors are losing, why are we not changing our game?
Learn from one person's experience to avoid burning hands, missing projectd deadlines, missing requirements and to avoid going through exhaustive mud slinging litigations.

A distributed Scrum team is a necessity than a choice in many cases. Often customers and their suppliers struggle to put up a team model that will work effectively and provide maximum value. The customer wants to be absolutely sure how the entire engagement will be executed so that there are no surprises later.
So, what are the different ways of forming teams in a distributed environment, what is the impact on the execution, how do you execute different engagement models, what challenges do you see and so on? These are the questions the customers are interested in.
This talk will focus on answering the above questions. We have defined 3 types of distributed team models and implemented in few of the projects in an onshore-offshore scenario. We have also tailored scrum meetings like planning, DSM, etc. so that these meetings are more effective in distributed model. While some of the changes have worked, some still needs to be enhanced further.
