This paper describes a case study of scrum adaption in a legacy project referred here as Global Configurator Project (GCP) where key stakeholders are distributed across locations in Germany, India and the U.S. The paper presents practices that improved communication and collaboration, helped the team overcome the key project challenges caused by the product owners and scrum master not being co-located, insufficiently collaborative environments, and the tendency to micromanage. These practices have contributed significantly towards the success of the project. The paper also presents how the project team developed a high performance team and took on new roles and responsibilities. The paper is targeted at distributed scrum masters and product owners in global software development.
