Now more than ever, companies are expected to be able to immediately respond and react to emerging trends or changes in their market. This demand for agility coupled with the growing complexities of large-scale systems, makes extended daily interactions for software development teams imperative. Business challenges today require side-by-side collaboration between developers and internal users. This simply cannot happen consistently when half the team is sitting on the other side of the world.

We believe it is impossible to be truly agile when the majority of your team is on the other side of the globe. There’s a better option and we want to help teams discover it. It doesn’t matter what tool or process you’re using, what matters is having a team committed to the below values from the Agile Manifesto.
