Te Agile and Scrumprocess, however, suers when the team members are in geographically diverse locations. Tis impediment is compounded when senior sowareproduct management and architects are tasked with managing, in somecases, dozens o simultaneous hardware/soware projects across thosedisparate geographies.VBrick, a leading provider o scalable solutions or the management anddistribution o streaming media aced such issues when they openeda brand new oce and executive briefng center in Herndon, VA. Tecompany had recently hired a new Chie echnology Ocer and Chie Architect who would be located in the Herndon oce but, would bemanaging developers at the company’s Connecticut oce as well asremote employees. Chie Architect, Henry Zektser sums up the issue:“We inherited developers who had traditionally used the waterall so-ware model and put them through Agile-Scrum training to get everyoneon the same page, literally and fguratively. We had multiple locations,remote workers, and lots o projects that needed to be managed.”
