The Five Dysfunctions of a Distributed Team

This talk is what happens when you combine the knowledge in Patrick Lencioni's book "The Five Dysfunction of a Team" with some of the ideas presented in the book "A Practical Guide to Distributed Scrum" and the experiences Steffan Surdek acquired working with distributed teams in the last five years.

Last fall, Steffan read Lencioni's book and quickly realized that he could now give a better explanation to many situations he faced when working with distributed teams. In this talk, participants will learn to relate these dysfunctions to the challenges that come with being part of a distributed Scrum team. They will also come out with some suggestions and ideas on how they can address theses issues to make their distributed teams work more smoothly together.
