How we get things done – Scrum

Action Required: Complete your first Daily Scrum

The Daily Scrum is the lifeblood of our success.

The quick and dirty intro: 15 minutes or less and 4 super-simple questions –

What did we do yesterday? What are we doing today? What are we doing tomorrow? Any blocks or challenges to our daily or sprint goal?

To reduce complexity, it is held at the same time and place every working day of the Sprint

Daily Scrums improve communications, identify impediments, promote quick decision-making, and consequently eliminate the need for other meetings.

The Daily Scrum is Not a Status Meeting

The vast majority of teams conduct the daily scrum meeting by having each person answer the three questions in order. You answer all three, then the next person, the next and so on. An interesting alternative that some teams find helpful is to talk through one product backlog item before moving on to the next. In this way, an individual may give an update at multiple different times during the same meeting.
