Agile methods have been now widely popular and have been proved to be delivering high-quality software to the global users in shorter time frames and are effectively handling the continuous change on the requirements from the users. However, due to various reasons such as technical expertise scarcity, functional expertise scarcity, cost effectiveness, resource availability, globalization, necessity to work to the fullest taking the advantage of time zone variations and other factors; the teams can be geographically dispersed. We can call them Distributed Agile teams[1]. Given this globally distributed nature of the Agile team, the major challenge lies with the team communication and building trust across the team; It is difficult to foster team bonding and collabora-tion with the distributed teams with few or no face-to-face interaction. The difficulties in communica-tion and lack of trust in Distributed agile teams would have an impact on the productivity .Our ob-jective is to suggest usage of some of the existing practices and propose a new practice KYTE to overcome the barriers of communication and building trust in Distributed Agile Teams ,which would contribute to the increase in productivity.
