Mark Kilby – “Distributed Agile: Evolution or Delusion?” at Agile2016

Mark Kilby thinks it’s time to rethink what face-to-face means for Agility, especially in today’s increasingly global economy. In his Agile2016 session “Distributed Agile: Evolution or Delusion?” Mark emphasized that collaboration and connection between team members is what’s important, and that collocation doesn’t automatically imply face-to-face communication. While tools like Sococo and telepresence robots are great for enhancing team connections, Mark advocates for more human patterns, namely: the buddy system, pairing/copiloting and backchanneling.
