The Daily Scrum

Its a question that gets asked a lot… “Do we have to do it today?”, “Can we skip today?”, “Why is it everyday?”, especially for teams new to the concept.

The answer is simple…. Yes.

Why Everyday?

The daily scrum is a time where all team participants get to meet and each have an equal, and relevant time to discuss progress. Even if a team is close and most do know what is going on… this means the daily stand up will be a lot shorter; definitely not something to complain about.

The Exceptions

  • You combine it with a different meeting, for example if you have a sprint planning in the morning, the end of this meeting might take up some discussions on what people will work on first, priorities etc. It wouldn’t make sense then to do a daily standup considering most of the details are probably already discussed.
  • Remote Teams, sometimes it might be difficult to hold daily stands ups, especially when teams are located in different time zones. If these calls generally go on late in the afternoon/evening for one of the teams — to keep morale high it might be a good idea to skip this one and not keep everyone back and preventing them from starting their weekend!
