Learn the necessary mindshifts and principles to create successful distributed agile teams.

Are you thinking about creating distributed agile teams? Maybe you’re in a distributed or dispersed team and you want to use an agile approach? Maybe you’d like to see what it would take to be a successful distributed agile team?

In this introductory self-study workshop, we’ll introduce you to:

  • Why you might want a distributed agile team.
  • The three necessary mindset changes everyone needs for a distributed agile team.
  • The eight principles of successful distributed agile teams.
  • Four team types and how to see your team type.
  • Self-study experiments or homework so you can see your environment and create small experiments

All this in just under two hours of video!

We'll invite you to a discussion group to talk about the course. And, we plan to offer lab/office hours roughly twice a month. We expect to iterate on when those hours are. Regardless of where you are in the world, we (one of us) will make time to work with you.
