Comment: Stand-ups

Agile Revolution comments that people didn't show up for his stand-up today because the scrum master wasn't there. What does this mean? Read this, my comments, and add your own.

One of my main thoughts is that if a person values something, they will leverage it. How do you help someone see value in the standup?

  1. Hi Kevin--

    I posted a brief response at the other blog you linked to. I think how iterations typically play out contributes significantly:

    Almost universally, people who say their standups are a waste of time are working in this manner. Nothing really changes from day-to-day within the iteration, so what's the point?

    There are many other advantages to getting the team to collaborate on stories instead.
