Chapter 13. Offshore

An intellectual is a person who has discovered something more interesting than sex.Aldous Huxley

Many tips relevant to agile offshore development with Scrum are covered in other chapters—Multisite, and so forth. In offshore, all the usual Scrum events and practices apply.

This chapter focuses on the intersection of agility with typical ‘offshore’ issues:

• different culture and language

• knowledge/requirements transfer

• short-term projects rather than long-term product development
