From Chaos to Successful Distributed Agile Teams

You’ve worked on agile teams before, but how do you use these same practices with a distributed team? You don’t! Learn the three mindset shifts and eight principles that will teach you how to adapt your team’s culture, practices, and virtual workspace to continuously deliver. Hire, lead, and support distributed teams that are truly agile, happy, and successful.

Remote Pairing

Two heads are better than one but only when they’re working on the same problem. Create a secure collaborative editing environment, then share your screen using free open source tools and protocols. Collaborate, sketch on a virtual whiteboard, and resolve conflicts using one of the most advanced integrated development environments around.

Real-World Kanban

When a team goes remote, unclear priorities, lack of direction, and overwork can bring everything to a grinding halt. Follow along with four case studies to boost engagement, teamwork, and flow in change management and operations; save a derailing project with Kanban; and help an office team outside IT keep up with growth using Kanban.

Become an Effective Software Engineering Manager

Even under normal circumstances, the transition to manager can be tough. Throw in a global crisis, and it can seem impossible. Learn to organize and delegate without micromanaging. Coach and mentor, deal with deadline pressure, and handle sensitive information, all while keeping staff happy.

Pomodoro Technique Illustrated

Let’s be honest, the toughest thing about working from home is all the distractions! Take charge of your day by identifying what you need to do right now as opposed to later. Prevent your mind from wandering with short bursts of focused activity that will keep you fully engaged. All you need is a pencil, some paper, and a timer!

Liftoff

Align your team to one purpose: successful delivery. Get everyone on the same page from the start and boost team performance. Leverage the experience of real-life teams lifting off as seasoned coaches describe their experiences with liftoffs and agile team chartering. Every liftoff is unique, but success is common.
