Quick Tip: Don’t Do Daily Stand Up on Sprint Planning Day

Missing Stand Up on Sprint Planning Day

We all know everyone doesn’t like meetings.

A good tip to save you some time is to not do the Sprint Planning on the day of Sprint Planning. What you should actually do is spend a few minutes at the end of the Sprint Planning meeting to discuss the first things that will be tackled during the sprint. With this, everyone will leave the meeting with a sense of purpose.

This doesn’t need to to be an actual daily stand up, there should be no impediments or they do not need to go through what happened since the last stand up. The team in this time should have been closing off work successfully to end the sprint.

Remember, the daily stand up is to sync the team, and in the Sprint Planning team everyone should already be in sync, having a daily stand up after this meeting is probably a waste of time.
