Remote working in our industry is becoming more prevalent everyday. Geography is no longer a constraint in setting up a work function in an organisation.In 2010 REA Group, together with ThoughtWorks China, set up an offshore delivery centre.This centre works extremely effectively using REA Agile processes.

As a Technical Lead,I have detailed hands on experience and specifics that I will share with the audience on what has worked well for us as well as what hasn’t worked so well.
