High-Gravity Distributed Agile Teams: Derek W. Wade

Distributed Agile can work, but distance often harms self-organization. Typical reaction: load down teams with tools and rigid structure. Typical result: the death of self-organization. The trick to effective distributed Agile teams is the same as for colocated Agile teams: give them focus, then get out of the way and let them form into a hive-mind. But how? Distributed Cognition is a technique from cognitive psych proven in helping teams go from “norming” to “performing.” Come explore how to create gravity that pulls your team together, rather than you pushing them.
