I came across that discusses the following five challenges in a distributed agile team environment:

  1. Communication
  2. Access
  3. Space Layout
  4. Product Delivery Issues
  5. Personalities

The post is in , which is a portal you might want to be regularly listening to. What was interesting to me in this article was a couple of things. First, the author tried to provide / share solutions to each of the challenges, which might inspire your ideas. But second, as I read the article, it struck me that ALL of these challenges surface in co-located or local agile teams as well. It’s just that being distributed makes them more visible and perhaps even more challenging.

Anyway, I always like to share articles that focus on this aspect of agility.

Stay agile my friends,
