In a world were the teams are spread across various geographies and time zones, how does DevOps fit in. Does the case studies in the book cover any such scenario?

No we have no outsourcing case study. One technique used in continuous deployment is to decouple teams. If teams do not communicate directly then the face that they are distributed should not affect development. The fact that a portion is outsourced (I assume through some sort of contracting mechanism) means that there might be some contractual barriers to adoption. I haven't read anything about such problems but its an interesting topic.
