When working in a GDD (Global Distributed Delivery model)
When working in a GDD model it is essential to have a local standup with the team in your timezone and another combined standup with the larger team. For example, at Knoldus we follow the mentioned communication structure for effective standup and kick start of the day.
End of the day status email
Another important communication tool for the effective transition of updates is an end of the day status email. At Knoldus we have the following format for the email.
End of the day status email has the following advantages
The team on the other side of the globe knows exactly what the updates on the work are. (All the updates are not available from Git)
If there are any wins or blockers, the same is communicated effectively so that the work can continue.
