Get more from your remote teams


Agile is now commonly used in many organisations but most people struggle when the conditions are not in the ideal agile sweet spot of co-location and small teams.

In fact, most organisations rarely experience situations that are ideal for agile due to working internationally, with multiple teams and perhaps 3rd party suppliers.

With the increase of remote working due to Covid-19, organisations which never previously had to manage remote teams, must now do so.

Although this video was recorded before the Covid-19 pandemic, its insights into how to get the most out of your remote agile teams are valid today for anyone involved in managing remote teams. The presentation will directly address how to improve agile in a distributed context. It will challenge existing perceptions and present alternatives that may surprise you.


This video is presented by Keith Richards, the Founder of agileKRC and a leading Agile writer and practitioner. Keith was the Lead Author of AgilePM (Agile Project Management) and PRINCE2 Agile.

In the video Keith looks at how to get the best from your distributed agile teams. Keith focuses on what the number one problem really is and this may not be what you think it is!

This video looks at what things you need to get right and covers areas including:

  • How do you get agile to work on large-scale projects when teams are in different locations?
  • How do you address widely differing time zones with small overlaps?
  • How significant are cultural differences?
  • How do you create a ‘rich communication’ environment?
  • What problems are to do with agile, and what are just problems, and nothing to do with agile!
  • How important are the tools you use?
  • Do traditional project management disciplines have a role to play?
