Busting Remote Agile Myths with Molood Noori

Luis Magalhaes published on

How can you follow Agile principles with a distributed / remote team? Several high-profile coaches and speakers in the Agile world say it isn’t possible. But in this episode, Molood Noori points out that the whole ethos of Agile is about embracing change, and being unwilling to adapt to the future of work is, in that sense, the least Agile thing you can do. 

Welcome to the DistantJob Podcast, a show where we interview the most successful remote leaders, picking their brains on how to build and lead remote teams who win.

Molood Noori is the founder and owner of Remote Forever (https://remoteforever.com), and is behind the organisation of the worlds first fully web-based Agile Remote summit, the Remote Forever Summit (https://remoteforeversummit.com). She’s also a certified scrum master and has worked as an agile coach with clients all over the world.

In this episode, we dive deep into a conversation about why Agile practitioners have been historically reluctant to embrace remote work; what are the problems of trying to replicate the real world office and its way of working in the digital real; and in what way scrum can be like an old Ericsson phone if you’re not mindful of the real purpose of using frameworks. There’s something here for anyone wanting to embrace the ethos of adapting to change by thinking differently.
