In our Scrum shop, since teamwork was King, anyone remote, travelling, and even sick (sometimes) had to phone in for standups, team meetings, and Sprint reviews. We even had remote people present at reviews! It was a means to justify allowing them to WFH. And for some reason, no matter how much money and people we threw at the problem, A/V was never quite up to snuff. Always quite the hot topic at our retrospectives, and quite embarassing in front of stakeholders (sigh). There is such a thing as going too far.
