Daily Stand-up Meeting

A great way to practice daily SCRUM/Stand-up meeting and to get alignment inside the agile team


Description

This activity is meant to help participants become aware of what lies in their power and what doesn’t, so they can manage their energy more effectively by focusing on what can actually and positively impact their performance. Also, they discover that sometimes, challenges that may seem outside their control area are perceived differently by other team mates and thus participants have the chance to gain more clarity on the matter and to start building a common perspective and a more positive mindset.

Flow

Introduction

  • Introduce the activity to the participants and split into teams; encourage the teams to nominate a SCRUM Master that will help with facilitating the meeting as per the SCRUM framework.
  • Join each team and provide the activity link.

Work

  • Participants take turns and provide a complete yet concise answer to the three questions written on the board: What did I do yesterday? What will I do today? What are the impediments?
  • In case of impasse in regard to a certain task, they can ask for help.
  • They write down the main ideas, so they can track down their progress.

Debrief (suggested)

  • The facilitator may ask the following questions:
    • How useful do you find this format of standup meeting? How exactly do you think it will help you and your team?
    • How difficult was it for you as a team to stick to those three questions and not to digress to other topics/details?
    • How was it for you – the SCRUM Master from each team – facilitating the meeting?
