Remote Teams and Virtual Facilitation
via Scrum.org Blog by Ram Srinivasan
I have my own biases, having seen co-located teams work very well and having struggled with “dislocated” teams, I often recommend my clients to reconsider “dislocated” teams. And by “dislocation” I am not saying you cannot have teams ten time zones away. What I mean by a “dislocated” team is when three team members are in one time zone, but in different locations and other team members are in different locations and time zones. (Technically speaking – it might be better to call them workgroup than a team). A “non-dislocated” team is one where all team members are physically sitting right next to each other.
