    Scrum is a very popular Agile Framework, but "out of the box" it is restricted to a single, co-located, Team working on a Single Product. Most situations are more complicated than that: multiple locations, multiple Products, multiple Teams, and so on. I will introduce a few patterns (Well-Formed Team, Program Team, Workgroup, ...) and show how they can be combined, using a few simple principles, to work in some quite complicated situations. I will also show how the two most popular scaling frameworks (SAFe and LeSS) can each be explained and improved by using these patterns.

    Building successful distributed delivery teams is a challenge. Leveraging the benefits of Agile methodologies is even harder. However, if you identify your vision of success, create a plan, and apply Agile principles and values, it is possible to create highly-performant, distributed Agile teams. 

    During this session, Matt, the Director of Project Management at Appia in Durham, and Jose Naranjo, a Team Lead with Velocity Partners in Colombia, share how they used Agile’s core principles and values as the foundation to build a successful nearshore team. Their experience report will show how to organize the teams, set up relevant working agreements and avoid the common “offshore/nearshore” pitfalls. 

    If you have participated in similar endeavors and did not see success, are currently working with distributed teams, or are about to embark on an initiative to build a new team, this presentation will provide a roadmap and useful strategy.
