We started working on distributed Agile project in which NL part of the team was new to distributed Agile concepts. For some people this was first practical introduction to Agile implementation. My job was to coach team on Agile concepts and work with Scrum Master and Product Owner to resolve any practical implementation issues. We implemented "Virtual One Room" (http://sampreshan.svashishtha.com/2011/09/18/distributed-agile-bridging-communication-gap-with-virtual-one-room/) concept for this project which was very successful. At the end of short stint, team was comfortable on itself to work-out with Agile concepts.
