This tutorial focuses on the detailed specifics that will make distributed agile meetings effective. We will demonstrate several key agile meetings, run in a distributed fashion, so teams can immediately improve their projects. To do so, I will highlight specific tools available in the market place to facilitate each of these different kinds of discussions (retrospectives, planning meetings, stand ups). I’ll demonstrate the processes to enable more effective communication between remote locations and describe the key roles required on a project to encourage the best exchange of information.
Join Esther and Diana, the authors of Agile Retrospectives: Making Good Teams Great!, on an interactive journey of Adventure. Follow the trail of a flexible framework for Retrospectives, a map for designing and leading Retrospectives. Retrospectives offer the greatest lever for project or process improvement—based on the solid data of a team’s immediate past experience of success and failure. The Adventure lies in holding Retrospectives throughout the project—capturing, managing, and disseminating technical knowledge and process wisdom to improve current and future projects.
