Frustrated with long, boring stand-ups?
Daily Scrum meetings (also known as a "daily stand-up", a "daily huddle", "morning roll-call", "daily sync", etc.) are probably the most visible component of Scrum. There are groups that claim they are doing agile due to the mere presence of this one meeting. It’s as if people think that adopting a quick 15 minute meeting is the answer to every dysfunction in their organization.
There is nothing inherently wrong with having a daily scrum, it’s a great practice. The thing you have to realize though is that three questions are just a starter kit… they help you understand the kinds of things you might want to talk about… they are not the reason you meet for your daily meeting. As a Scrum team, you have made a commitment to your customer, and to yourselves, to deliver a certain amount of product at the end of the sprint. The daily Scrum is a recurring opportunity for the team to get together and discuss their progress against that shared commitment.
That’s why our goal in this course is getting the most out of the Daily Scrum meeting, one of the core Scrum events.
We are confident that well-managed Daily Scrum meetings provide the shortest feedback loop, which makes them special. Doing so will you succeed with Agile.
