Transform Your Daily Standup

| Comments

So you’re a developer. Of course you’re doing SCRUM. Every sprint starts with a planning and ends with a review or demo. There’s a retrospective, some refinement sessions, and of course, your standup (or daily SCRUM). And although you’re following guidelines and have "standup questions" everyone needs to answer, there’s something wrong. The standup takes forever, you feel you’re wasting time there. You already know what you’re colleagues are up to. Why does that SCRUM master make you listen to this?

Sounds familiar? It does, right? You’re doing the standup wrong. Read on and transform your standup into the little ball of energy and focus for the whole team that it is meant to be.

As I put a lot of effort into bumping the proverbial life out of a lot of aforementioned attendees and conference organisers, I’d like to share with you some basics on bumper care driving.
