Join Bob McGannon for an in-depth discussion in this video Designing and running your stand-up meetings, part of Agile Project Management.
…The daily stand-up meetings are the heartbeat of an Agile project.…This meeting is crucial to the success of the project, as…critical information should be shared to enable roadblocks to be removed.…The stand-up meetings should be about 15 minutes long, sharp, and to the point.…Having the attendees remain standing helps…keep the meeting short, upbeat, and active.…All business and technical specialist team members…should attend along with the project manager, sometimes called the ScrumMaster.…Ideally, the project manger does not lead the meeting.…
Instead, team members will each provide their update.…Have your team present their status in a different sequence each day.…Having them rotate who goes first adds energy to your meetings.…Assign someone on the team to be time keeper to keep the group focused.…This may only be necessary until the group…is conditioned to the daily meeting format.…30 to 60 seconds per person should be sufficient.…The time keeper should be rotated for each sprint.…Probably the hardest habit to break is not to resolve issues during the meeting.…
