Peter Gfader on the dangers of working with offshore teams

Talent is everywhere in the world, and we can’t always find the right people in our city. But having an offshore team presents specific challenges that we must prepare for. In this episode, Peter shares with us a story of an offshore team, and how the context he missed as a Scrum Master for an offshore team was so critical. In this Episode we also play a fun game that Peter explains in the following blog post: Can you find the 3 smells in “I added a Refactoring Story for the next Cleanup Sprint”?

About Peter Gfader

Peter hates shitty software and tries his best to improve the profession of software development. For this reason, he joined scrum.org. The seek for improvement keeps him getting out of bed every day… and the smell of coffee that reminds him of warm sunny Sundays in a beach cafe with sand between his toes. One day, Peter woke up and realized that software development is not only about code, but also about people: From his teammates till the end user. Some people you just give donuts and some you need to give a little bit more. Peter is on a journey to make everyone happy.

If he is not sitting on a mountain bike or playing the trumpet, you might find him at a local user group to hang out with other geeks.
