Distributed agile and offshoring - antagonism or symbiosis?

Agile software development and the breed of agile methodologies (XP, SCRUM, DSDM, etc.) have gained popularity since 2001. Agile methodologies were primarily founded for software projects executed at a single location. Today, with many adopters and practitioners across the globe, agile methodologies are showing promising results in multi-site projects too. Offshore delivery models have been successful in application maintenance and enhancement projects for more than two decades. In the case of development projects, iterative lifecycle approaches are more widespread and acceptable than the classical waterfall approach in delivering results and ensuring customer satisfaction.
