What are daily stand ups for? giving status..
Actually, that’s not the main purpose.
The main purpose is to actively remove any impediments the team is facing.
Secondly, for the team to actively work towards a single goal, the sprint’s goal.
A stand up ran done correctly, helps in aligning purpose and gives a boost of optimism.
In Jeff Sutherland’s point of view, it’s a ceremony to create harmony between the team, what he calls ‘transcendence’
The three activities to discuss therefore are:
- What did you yesterday “to help the team finish the sprint”
- What will you do today “to help the team finish the sprint”
- Any obstacles in the “teams” way
Keep stand ups inspiring, people walking out should feel ‘hell yeah, let’s do this’..
