The Daily Scrum

This will be the first in a series of ‘mini-blog’ posts, small bite sized content with hopefully small nuggets of knowledge, inspiration or motivation.

Why Everyday?

You might hear that “We talk every day anyway, we sit so close to each other we all know whats going on”. I don’t think this is the case, and the discussions that take place during the day are definitely not the same. Are you really that confident that everyone on your team has an equal input to every conversion, problem or solution?

The Exceptions

I think you can only really get away with not having a scrum every day for the following:

  • 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!
