In this session, I asked for what struggles people were having. You’ll see those on the first flipchart and we numbered them.

Then, I told the group that one of my biggest lessons was that I had to let go of the practices I knew and had to go back to principles. This is also stated in the book Johanna Rothman and I wrote.

With that idea in mind of principles that still apply in distributed agile, I asked the group to capture some principles (and generic practices) on sticky notes. We then talked about some of the possible ways it would suggest adapting practices or suggest new ones. We started to add numbers to represent the struggles that could be overcome by these principles.

We ran out of time, but I committed to the group that I would blog on these over the coming weeks (also in the commitment garden).
