Once upon a time there was a software development team. Every day they worked remotely. One day they committed to implementing agile principles even though their team size and locations were not what most would hope for when implementing agile practices. Because of that, many new team processes were implemented. Because of that, the team experimented often and continually adapted. Until finally the team of 36 people in 36 locations spread across 4 time zones became one team.
During this session Kupe will talk about his role as Delivery Leader and how he worked with his team to implement agile principles when all the odds were against them. You will walk away with ideas you and your team can use to improve your efficiency and effectiveness.
• Learn how it all starts with One Team
• See how you can adapt many agile principles when your team is not the ideal size
• Experience key take-aways to implement with your team
