      Timofey Evgrashin (Сiklum Consulting).
      Today, globalization has made distributed teams a daily practice. Often this is not a matter of saving, but an urgent need.
      At the same time, we often hear complaints about the inefficiency of teams sitting in different offices, and that they say only in teams sitting at the same round table “true” Agile is possible.

      The Agile manifesto says: “A working product is more important than comprehensive documentation.” Everyone understands this point in their own way: someone reduces the requirements for 1-2 lines, then receiving the fruit of the creativity of programmers, someone, on the contrary, seeks to describe everything in detail, spending time, during which the product may no longer be relevant on the market . How to find a balance, that golden mean that will help your project get the best balance: quality documentation vs time spent and resources?
