Due to the covid-19 pandemic, our IT developers and IT managers work from home. Furthermore, and in different time zones and different locations. Therefore, daily Scrum meetings are Not really practical for us. Also, before covid-19 pandemic, a lot of IT developers worked also in the office. My IT tech lead sat right Next to me. I could also just walk over to the IT Operations team technician, and help him if he needed help deploying one of my application to Production environment.
Nowadays, majority of us work remotely from home. Therefore, it's a lot of lengthy emails, Skype, Zoom, Lync Online Web Conference calls which is obviously Not as interactive and Not as engaging.
However, could someone please tell me if we can "cherry pick" in order to choose certain Agile practices, and ignore other Agile practices? would that work?
If yes, could someone elaborately describe how my office team could go about doing this?
Or Is it always All Or Nothing with Agile practices?
