Whenever there's a disaster, earthquake, mud slide and people get lost, rescue dogs are summoned to help and find these people. Within 24/48 hours rescue dogs from all over the world are operating in that area. Timelyness is really a matter of life and death. People from different parts of the world, who haven't worked together before have to cooperate quickly and effectively with each other. This talk will provide a quick view into how the International Rescuedog Organization tries to solve this problems and what I think we in agile teams can learn from from this approach.
