Scrum emphasizes communication and collocation. Offshoring is by defnition not collocated and communication is limited by distance, language and cultural barriers. Some say Scrum and Offshoring don't mix. Others say Scrum is the best way to do offshoring.
Fredi Schmidli, Country Manager Switzerland of swiss IT bridge, the software development company with development resources mostly in Vietnam, will present how the business works, what has been successful, where there could be improvement. Then we will discuss as a group how Scrum can be applied to the problem.
