Agile Development on Distributed Teams

The combination of agile becoming mainstream and distributed teams becoming more common in software development means we need to be creative in following agile values, principles and practices with non-co-located agile teams. Lisa Crispin will review the different flavors of distributed teams, and what we can do to promote a culture that lets this work. We can even find ways to leverage some advantages of distributed teams. Following a short presentation, participants will work in groups to brainstorm more ways to help distributed agile teams succeed.
