The Omaha Agile Development user group will focus on discussing Agile related topics and techniques. The group is being established as a response to our community’s interest in Agile adoption across multiple organizations. The main goal is to create a collaborative forum where members of our agile community can meet and discuss their experience, share ideas and techniques or learn more about incorporating or improving agile practices within their own organization.
Come join us, with speaker Stephanie Trudell, for an opportunity to learn about ways you can foster agile practices to occur with your virtual agile teams:
Agile development was originally designed for teams that were physically co-located. The idea was that better communication during project activities would occur with teams that were able to meet face-to-face. In today’s modern workplace, team members can be globally distributed, either in the office or from home. To take advantage of the benefits of a distributed team, organizations need to recognize the challenges of virtual teams and create different pathways for agile practices to occur.
