I am running Scrum with highly distributed virtual teams from more than 10 years ago. Nothing new. There is no line inside the Scrum Guide that said something about the team is not virtual or distributed.
While face-to-face communication around a shared modeling surface (e.g. whiteboard) is ideal, being agile is about improving your way of working within the constraints which you can't control or influence.
Using good video conferencing tools with a virtual collaboration platform like Miro or Mural can go a long way to breaking down the barriers of dispersion.
You could also use a fishbowl window approach if you wanted to keep osmotic learning going...
thanks for your quick answer. We are using Miro and it's really nice and effective.
I am curious about how other teams adapted on the new challenges within the given Scrum rules. For example: Changing the sprint duration from four to two weeks, because the coordination in the dev team got difficult.
My teams are having more unstructured communication with the stakeholders nowadays. However I find that this has not brought any negative disruptions to sprint management.
Thanks for the clarification, Maria.
