Distributed Scrum Teams Whack A Mole - Creative Solutions to Common Obstacles
Summary: This talk focuses on taking a newly formed distributed team from mediocre to high performing despite language / cultural / time zone differences, misunderstanding of scrum and the "us" vs. "them” mentality (all moles we will bop). We’ll journey through the challenges of relationship building, shifting the agile mindset, lack of focus and sad ceremonies and identify dozens of creative, innovative and fun ideas towards successfully overcoming them. Bio: I’ve bounced around the IT world for over 20+ years, starting off as a Graphic Designer which propelled me to Testing, Management, Business Analysis and Product Ownership, with a stint in podcasting. I've worked for large corporations such as IBM, Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse and smaller "family run businesses" as well. The one thing in common is my passion towards injecting creativity, dissecting agile principles and promoting the Scrum values within my teams. Especially when it comes to distributed teams, which is now more common than ever before. I'm an energetic eternal optimist, the undercover investigator, the one who wants to discover what's under the hood. You can find out more at
