Impediments / stumbling blocks are noted by the Scrum Master and a resolution is worked on outside of the meeting. At most, a team member may make a brief statement in reply, such as, "Let's connect more on that after the meeting." No detailed discussions happen during this meeting.
- All members of the development team come prepared with their updates.
- Meeting always starts precisely on time, even if some team members are missing.
- Meeting should happen at the same time and place each day.
- Meeting is timeboxed to no more than 15 minutes.
- Anyone is welcome to attend, but only core roles speak.
Things I Like:
- Daily collaboration among team members so everyone is aware of each other's progress.
- 15 minute limit values each team member's time.
- Opportunities for offline discussion, problem-solving, and establishing a thought partner when needed without the rest of the team feeling locked into the meeting.
What benefits could this have to projects and meetings you lead / are involved in? What challenges to this kind of meeting structure do you see?
