The advantage of remote working is that we can easily record our reviews and create a library for interested stakeholders that are accessible asynchronously. This also removes the dependency on key stakeholder availability as they’re able to access the Review content at convenience. The attendees of the review will vary based on the value delivered. Below are examples of people a Remote AF team invites to a Review;
For a team to facilitate a Review successfully, we provide them;
Where there are no legal constraints or commercial risk, we make the content of the Review available to the whole organisation in a commonly used repository. Where there are constraints that prevent the team from publishing recordings, automated transcripts with sensitive information redacted are still published to maintain transparency. By prioritising transparency in the absence of risk the team builds trust with the organisation.
Some teams in the “new normal” are significantly distributed across time zones or have a high volume of stakeholders engaged in feedback loops. These teams can experiment with a pattern for asynchronous review by recording and publishing work as it’s completed.
