Gist: How to implement agile across distributed teams.
Note: Keeping productivity in mind it is really not advisable to distribute teams. Expect half the productivity you could otherwise expect from a team.
See Agile Advice for tips on proper room design.

S1: produce a feature list
S2: Give the offshore team a tiny (2-3% of total size) bit of features
- prioritized based on business value

S3: write the test cases, give them to the offshore team

S4: use focus groups

S5: if the features are delivered, go back to the feature list and ask the focus group: do we have enough business value?
