The Agile Manifesto states that face-to-face communication is the most efficient and effective method to communicate with and within an agile development team. But what if none of those team members sit in the same place, or even the same time zone? Can distributed agile teams deliver value, iteration after iteration, and rapidly adjust as customer needs and market conditions change? In short, can distributed teams reap the full benefits of agility?

Join us for the story of the evolution of Sonatype’s distributed agile teams as told by Mike Hansen, Senior Vice President of Engineering, and Mark Kilby, Agile Coach. In this webinar you will learn:

  • Why distributed is a powerful differentiator: With the right people and the right process, multiple agile teams composed of completely distributed individuals can deliver on common goals.

  • How to foster a culture of collaboration: Two key elements of Sonatype’s engineering culture - open source mindset and agile principles - fuel collaboration and a culture of delivery, regardless of geographic location.

  • Ways to overcome the pitfalls of distance: Even in a highly-functioning distributed team, challenges will arise. Learn what problems the Sonatype team has faced and how they’ve overcome them.
