Business Agility insights and upcoming events
During a recent conversation with one of our newest enterprise customers, the CIO explained that they have many teams in India and the U.S. who they need to engage closer with because of travel limitations. “The ability of Continuous Improvement to help me engage my distributed teams and accelerate maturity virtually is very significant to me at this time.”
With the recent Coronavirus outbreak, companies have shifted to virtual teamwork and collaboration. The need to create high-performing distributed Agile teams is now bigger than ever.
So we decided to dedicate this newsletter to specific solutions on how you can mitigate any business disruption by doubling down on Continuous Improvement efforts and enabling effective engagement with distributed teams.
We hope everyone will stay safe during these uncertain times. Our heartfelt prayers go out to those who have been impacted by this global pandemic.

Doubling Down on Continuous Improvement
Continuous Improvement is about measuring where you are today as a team, identifying specific tangible areas for improvement at the team and organizational levels, and then actually making the improvements happen.
As Sally Elatta shared in our recent webinar, organizations are utilizing these 5 Continuous Improvement strategies:
- Adopting the concept of Big Room Retrospectives but in a virtual setting.
- Leveraging real actionable data and the voice of the teams to identify targeted improvement plans.
- Enabling teams to help themselves by providing self-learning resources for their targeted areas of improvement.
- Training managers and coaches on how to focus on removing organizational obstacles.
- Doubling down on developing Scrum Masters, Product Owners, Agile Managers and Coaches.

With virtual teams, there’s a need to invest more time ensuring your basic Agile ceremonies (i.e., planning, daily standup, review, retrospectives) are designed for virtual collaboration while removing any barriers by leveraging tools like chat, video, and online collaboration. We thought this recent blog post from scruminc.’s JJ Sutherland did a great job summarizing these topics.
