We do Stand up or Scrum meeting to update :
- what I worked on
- what I plan to work today
- what is stopping me to achieve my goal
It is like a synchronization point for the whole team, allows each member to know what others are working on. It gives a sense of sharing the commitment towards achieving a common goal. It helps to set direction for the whole team. Moreover it’s a ‘virtual’ team building exercise. It also acts as self check for individual to track their own progress. As stand up is attended by people from different background like project management, testing, development, it doesn’t really add value when we go too technical in explanations or when we pick up any discussions. Updates should be kept simple and straight and discussions should be parked for tech huddles.
