There are so many facets to agile transformation, and a huge one is location. Whether you’re a startup wanting to maintain the benefits of bedroom working as you expand, or a huge enterprise transforming globally, being able to build non-collocated working into the mix is hugely more possible now than in 2001 when principle 6 of the Agile Manifesto said:
“The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.”
At the forefront of this movement is Lisette Sutherland, who even runs the introductory workshops for what she does remotely. In this episode, we discuss why working remotely means you need rocking Internet, why to organise from north to south not east to west, why there’s no substitute for a bowl of nachos now and again and why the biggest risk when people work from home is that they work too much and burn out.
