As part of an agile process used by software development teams, the scrum meeting is a way to set your team up for the day’s work.
Scrum meetings should be a quick exchange of information — they should not be used for problem-solving or discussion. If issues are raised, take them offline and deal with them with a subgroup immediately after the meeting.
1. What did you do yesterday? ( 3 mins )
Give a quick rundown of what you got done yesterday, including planned and unplanned work. This doesn’t need to include the full to-do list, but things that took the majority of your time or are relevant to the whole team.
2. What will you do today? ( 3 mins )
Share the main things you plan to accomplish today so your team can hold you accountable in tomorrows meeting.
3. Blockers ( 4 mins )
Are there any impediments in your way?
4. Closing round ( 2 mins )
Take a moment to connect as a team. Try an icebreaker question.
