To help ensmembersure a successful delivery, it’s important that you get feedback from your project members everyday. With advent of newer technologies and newer practices to connect the co-located team or a team geographically distributed across the globe.
Latest Scrum Guide (2017-Scrum-Guide-US.pdf) is updated for Daily Scrum section to read: “The Daily Scrum is a 15-minute time-boxed event for the Development Team. The Daily Scrum is held every day of the Sprint. At it, the Development Team plans work for the next 24 hours. This optimizes team collaboration and performance by inspecting the work since the last Daily Scrum and forecasting upcoming Sprint work. The Daily Scrum is held at the same time and place each day to reduce complexity”
Daily Scrum section provides clarity on the goals of the Daily Scrum including this text: The structure of the meeting is set by the Development Team and can be conducted in different ways if it focuses on progress toward the Sprint Goal. Some Development Teams will use questions, some will be more discussion based. Here is an example of what might be used:
- What did I do yesterday that helped the Development Team meet the Sprint Goal?
- What will I do today to help the Development Team meet the Sprint Goal?
- Do I see any impediment that prevents me or the Development Team from meeting the Sprint Goal?
The latest Scrum Guide has softened the 3Q approach and it is one of the options among many. Team has the flexibility to discuss or decide the stand-up meeting agenda, based on what the team finds effective for itself.
