Distributed agile teams have a terrible reputation. They don't deliver on time, and too often, they don't deliver what the customer needs. However, most agile teams, have at least one remote team member. And, agile approaches are here to stay.

Don't blindly apply agile practices designed for collocated teams. Instead, learn to use three mindset shifts and the agile and lean principles to create your successful distributed agile team. Use the tips and traps to help your team succeed.

Leave the chaos of virtual teams behind. See how to help your distributed team succeed. This work was written and produced entirely by the author. We are proud to be distributing it.

You've worked on agile teams before, but how do you use these same practices with a distributed team? You don't! Taking off-the-shelf practices designed for collocated environments will only frustrate your teams. Or worse, you may even cause harm by forcing people to work unnatural hours because they are in a different timezone. Because your team works in a different environment, they need to think about a different way to work.

In this book, Johanna and Mark take you back to agile and lean principles and help you think how your team can adapt their culture, practices, and virtual workspace to continuously deliver. Three mindset shifts begin this rethinking process. Then Johanna and Mark describe eight principles to guide you on crafting the best collaborative environment for your teams. They also address hiring for your distributed teams and how leaders optimally support these distributed teams. Mark and Johanna provide many stories of how teams they have coached followed these principles in developing their own agile practices. Successful and even happy distributed agile teams are possible and this becomes your guidebook.
