On the one hand there are meanwhile not many projects left that are made at home without outsourcing, off- or nearshoring. On the other hand more and more projects discover the success factor of agile development which requests - among other things - an emphasis on face-to-face communication.

In this course attendees will learn about the key success factors  for distributed (and maybe even large-scale) software development. The focus will be on how to apply agile processes in a distributed setting and how to establish and preserve a common development culture. Participants will learn how to adapt both simple agile practices like a Daily Scrum (also known as: daily stand-up meeting) and more complex practices like a retrospective to a distributed environment. 

Attendees will understand that also distributed (and large) 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.

  • Bridging cultural differences
  • Supporting tools
  • Planning, delivery, deployment
  • Development practices

Learning Outcome

In this tutorial attendees will learn about key success factors for distributed (and maybe even large-scale) agile software development. The focus will be on how to apply agile processes in a distributed setting and how to establish and preserve a common development culture.

  • Participants will learn how to adapt agile practices to a distributed environment, such as (but not limited to) daily stand-up meetings or retrospectives
  • Attendees will understand that also distributed (and large) teams can benefit from a value system and from principles that are beneficial for small teams.
  • And that in fact the two trends - distribution in terms of globalization and agility - can even complement each other.

Participants will recognize typical obstacles when applying agility in a global setting. They will walk away with several best practices that will help them to overcome these obstacles and with an idea how to develop their own best practices.

Target Audience

Project managers, program managers, coaches, consultants and everyone interested in distributed Agile
