The main point of a daily standup (Daily Scrum) is for the team to better align towards the sprint goal * Teams get together to share transparently the ongoing work and highlight roadblocks/impediments they might be facing * It is a review of the things that were DONE and things we intend to get DONE. * Typically this is achieved by team members answering 3 questions
Cameras on and everyone contributes. * Use video conference tools. Everyone logs in separately - if a few people are co-located it can be difficult if that group is dialled in together. * Use an online visual timer to keep to the 15 minute timebox for stand-up. The core agenda is:
People tend to talk more for socialisation and for status updates, for this reason leave 5 minutes more at the end for these aspects that can be more relevant being distributed * Consider that the team may be distributed across multiple time zones so agree a time that is cognisant if this. * Collectively create a list of topics that need to be discussed after the standup, adding to a blockers board or in the parking lot.
