Project Management Teams Illustrated

Different project setups. Projects with (a) traditional collocated teams, (b) collocated teams with onsite consultants, (c) nondistributed outsourcing projects, and (d) nondistributed insourcing projects aren’t distributed, whereas projects with (e) distributed insourcing with two teams, (f) distributed outsourcing with two teams, (g) distributed insourcing with one virtual team, and (h) distributed outsourcing with one virtual team are considered distributed project arrangements. The projects described in (e) and (f) rely on loosely coupled teams, whereas (g) and (h) have dispersed or virtual teams.

my suggestion is don’t listen to others, play both, choose which one is the best for you. It solely depends on your programming style and attitude.

In my case, i use a hybrid system between TDD and BDD. 😀
