Agile Manifesto: • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools • Working software over comprehensive documentation • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation • Responding to change over following a plan Many Flavors What is agile?
Pim’s Project • Financial Software • Dutch UI • 6 teams • Located in 4 locations – 3 countries – 2 times zones – 3 mother tongues
Hard to work with teams in different locations? ‘A day in the life of a tester in China’ • Review tasks on TFS • 09:30 Internal standup: What will you do? How long do you need? Need help from colleagues? • 13:00: pre-grooming, if neeeded • 14:00-15:00 NL starts • 15:00-16:00 Groomings / retrospectives / standup meetings • Discuss with developers in Europe / wrap up. China and the Netherlands have a 6 hour time difference
English is hard for everyone Certain personality type does well Commitment of both sides Dutch specs: • Dutch Lessons • Translation software • Pre groomings Cultural / language differences
Communication Important in agile – Especially with distributed teams Daily stand ups Weekly grooming Continuous - email, IM, video
Keeping Remote Teams Involved • How to keep remote teams involved? • Visit once a year • Involve everyone in all meetings (even if that can proof hard in practice) • Make jokes, build personal relationships • Two locations, one team
