AgileThought Virtual Community

Social distancing and entirely remote workforces are the new reality for most companies around the world. For some, this transition may not weigh too heavily – but for many others, it’s been difficult to acclimate to this change and the emotional and behavioral adjustments that accompany it.

That’s why we created this virtual community forum: To give you the space to talk freely about the challenges you’re running into.


Conversation Topic:

You are part of a culturally diverse agile team, but there is a lack of understanding between the geographies and cultures of the individuals in your group. How can you leverage the fact that you have a culturally diverse team, and what are some things you should consider and incorporate to ensure successful collaboration and team cohesion


What to Expect:

Building upon our previous sessions, this AgileThought Virtual Community forum will teach attendees how to leverage their culturally diverse agile teams. Our agile practitioners will provide examples and considerations that you can introduce to your team, improving interactions and workstreams.

We will also record this virtual panel and publish it on our On-demand Webinars for future viewing.


Who Should Attend:

Anyone is welcome to join, but this will be particularly helpful for:

  • Agile teams
  • Leaders or champions who support agile environments
  • Managers or members of agile teams
  • Leaders of large programs


*Note: The virtual Zoom link for our event will be sent upon registration
