Each team member
2 levels of improvements/learning
Hours vs. progress
Meetings
Working in a distributed way, like using Scrum, makes issues more visible

Communication Channels
Communication
Why?
Savings
Opportunities
Work with the best
Work "abroad"
Being at Work
Campfire
"You must feel as if you were at work all the time"
Concerns
"I could never force myself
to get something done
while sitting at home"
"I have to go in person to make sure people are working properly"
"Our employees would just browse Facebook"
Office
Being there = working
Home
working = ?
Producing visible value !
notifications are important
commits
wiki edits
moving tasks
Work vs. life
Daily routine
Separation
The same channel used internally and with a Client
Distributed meetings are extremely boring
Asynchronous Communication
http://zachholman.com/posts/how-github-works-asynchronous/

getting into "flow"
asking for help
knowledge sharing
Brainstorming
Group decisions are better than expert advice
Diversity
Independence
Decentralization
Aggregation
idea by Jamie Allsop, agile-trac.org
Coupling & Interfaces
Organizations & teams are like components
Co-located team
tightly coupled
many fat interfaces
Distributed team
loosely coupled
easier to discover and define interfaces

Flexible working hours
absence
Functional
vs.
cross-functional teams

Talking about work

How working remotely looks like?

Why?

Changeless
Working remotely makes things more transparent
This talk is not about
proving that co-location is bad
Software development yoga
Rockwell International
Lockheed
Martin Marietta
Morton Thiokol
Announce start/finish
Getting down to work
Separation
Daily Scrum
Video
Tools
Skype, Google Hangouts, BigBlueButton, Mumble, TeamSpeak
Still room for improvement
Quality
Linux
Growing number of people
... and useless.
Pain: distracting notifications
Advice:

Constantly improve the way you communicate
Brainstorming & Planning - Technically
Writing
wikis, Google Docs
Co
lo
u
rs
On-line corkboards
UserVoice, IdeaScale
Estimating - planningpoker.com

Brainstorming can be asynchronous
Variety
How would you feel
if your boss told you
that starting from Monday
you will be working remotely?
