This video looks at how agile can be scaled to work on any multi–team project. Even a project with two teams will benefit from learning how to proactively manage team dependencies, conduct iteration planning for multiple teams, cultivate communities of practice, and coordinating work. It looks also at overcoming the unique challenges facing distributed teams. You will learn to decide how to distribute a team, how to create coherence among team members, the importance of getting together and when are the most important times to use the travel budget, changes to what the team documents, and how to handle meetings when spread across timezones.
