The Future of Agile: Remote and Asynchronous

The Future of Agile: Remote and Asynchronous | Molood Ceccarelli

The evolution of agile from collocated software teams to becoming the operating system of large and small businesses with a geographically distributed workforce.

Working remotely is not just working from a "different" location.

In the last decade, collocated team members were front and centre and remote workers were an afterthought. In the coming decade, remote workers will be front and centre.

Teams and organisations need to adapt their communication and collaboration processes to the new reality that has emerged. Future workplaces will be digital yet truly inclusive, respectful of freedom and independent of location and time.

The current style of management will no longer be relevant as the world is changing. The future of leadership is remote-first and asynchronous.
