Drawing upon extant literature, we first construct a framework consisting of three major dimensions (agility, virtualness, and structure) to address the question of how productive agile teams can be configured in globally distributed environments. We then propose a configurational pattern for global agile teams by taking each of the twelve principles of the Agile Manifesto and describe its intersection with each of the dimensions of the framework. Our examination indicates that eight principles are especially relevant for the configuration of global agile teams, while the four remaining principles are either unsupported by previous literature or do not constitute unique considerations.
