Stop! Coordinate and Listen: Bring Standups back with a brand-new convention!
According to the VersionOne State of Agile survey, the most widely practiced agile technique is still the daily standup (80%). Everyone knows its a critical part of agile and we all can recite the three questions by heart. But why do many agile teams say their standup just isn't working? Even though the stand up can be done very easily on an agile project (setup a 15 minute meeting every day and your done!), it takes some work to get the true value out of it. Everyone has probably been in that stand up where the energy level is very low and there just seems to be a group of people going through the motions. Or maybe there is dissention among the team and nobody wants to go anymore. In this workshop, we’ll discuss why stand ups are a critical practice for agile teams and how you, as an agile coach or Scrum Master, can support your teams in pursuing a useful, valuable stand-up and get out of the standup blues.
