This course is for you

Frustrated with long, boring stand-ups? Daily Scrum meetings (also known as a "daily standup", a "daily huddle", "morning roll-call", "daily sync", etc.) are probably the most visible component of Agile, and of Scrum in particular. There are groups that claim they are doing agile due to the mere presence of this one meeting. It’s as if people think that adopting a quick 15 minute meeting is the answer to every dysfunction in their organization. There is nothing inherently wrong with having a daily scrum, it’s a great practice. The thing you have to realize though is that three questions are just a starter kit… they help you understand the kinds of things you might want to talk about… they are not the reason you meet for your daily meeting. As a Scrum team, you have made a commitment to your customer, and to yourselves, to deliver a certain amount of product at the end of the sprint. The daily Scrum is a recurring opportunity for the team to get together and discuss their progress against that shared commitment. That’s why our goal in this course is getting the most out of the Daily Scrum meeting, one of the core Scrum events. We are confident that well-managed Daily Scrum meetings provide the shortest feedback loop, which makes them special. Doing so will you succeed with Agile. Who is the target audience? - Scrum Master & Agile Coach, - Any Agile Team member, - Anyone who attends a daily stand-up meeting.

You will learn: - The purpose and intent of the main 3 questions asked during the meeting, - How to plan & execute the meeting, - How to have a more effective communication.

In every part, best practices coming from the agile community are taught. You will appreciate additional recommended practices, based on my own experience, that are up to you to implement or not according to your situation. As well, obstacles that everyone involved in a stand-up meeting has already/will encounter(ed), and their workarounds and solutions. This course includes pieces of advice for distributed teams and remote workers. I hope you will enjoy it!
