Distributed Agile Project Management: A Myth?
Synopsis Increasingly, software is being developed following the agile approaches in a distributed setup. Due to the increased globalization and advancement of ICTs, project teams distributed across the globe has become a common place. At the same time, agile approaches have been embraced by organizations in an attempt to uncover ‘better ways of delivering software’. Distributed Agile, as the name implies, is a model in which projects are implemented following agile methodology with teams that are located across multiple geographies. This setup presents inherent conflicting demands due to the very nature of ‘agility’ and ‘distributedness’ required in a single project. This talk shall dwell on various kinds of team configurations that surround agile project management in distributed setup. Together, we attempt to explore the possible scenarios for effective management of the project work.
