Combining agile and offshore development

In optimizing processes IT organizations turned to offshore development OR to agile development, but not both.

That seems logical, as offshoring means no developer/customer interaction (whereas agile means intense interaction) and offshoring means heavy documentation (whereas agile means light documentation).

Surprisingly, the two can be combined successfully. 

Martin Fowler made a trip to India and came back with useful tips on agile offshore development.
