- Of all the Agile activities, the Daily Standup…is probably the most misunderstood.…The standup is about self-organizing.…The development team stands in a circle…and updates each other about what they're working on.…It sounds simple enough, but that's not how…most organizations operate.…Most meetings are driven by whoever called the meeting.…A standup is contrary to how most people think…about working.…Most managers feel that a group…left to stand and chat will continue to chat…until someone starts the meeting.…
The scrum master and the project manager…must fight the temptation to drive the standup.…The team may start chatty,…but they'll quickly become more disciplined.…All you need is a few standups that end on time.…Most meetings will just run long…if there's unfinished work.…Agile activities don't have that luxury.…Agile activities end when the timebox finishes.…Think of it this way, if the team can't self-organize…a daily standup, then how will they ever deliver…a working product?…The daily standup will be a good indicator…
