  • What do you really think of your daily standup?
    My new job recently pulled in to handle stand ups. Answer a couple basic questions when you login, and they’re all sent to a central channel. I’m not big on that type of communication in general, but it takes maybe 30 seconds each morning. - Source: Reddit / 14 days ago
  • As an IC, is there anything I can do about super cheerful team members using up meetings time?
    We use Geekbot to help standups. The feedback from each dev goes into a channel, then we talk about things that need to be addressed or things we're working on. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • Scrum Has Failed the Developers
    Back in 2005, I remember working on startups running on Scrum principles. It worked well at the time, we where able to ship, grow the team, and move forward with a nice few-features-per-week cadence, working remotely, on a small team; less than 10. Tt always worked fine, but very slow, as all-dev-things were at the time.

  • 30 Great Check-In Questions for Managers to Drop in Meetings
    Tips: A few other pointers to make daily standups more productive include keeping your standup groups small so daily updates are agile, concise, and relevant to attendees -- ideally at a 9 person maximum, according to the Scrum Guide.

  • Developer Diaries: Week 4 - The exploding brain
    We currently do standups on M/W/F, but we're contemplating moving those 15 minute meetings to T/TR, and on the other days do an "asynchronous" standup. To do that, we are evaluating if we want to just create a Slackbot reminder message in our channel, or if we want to involve a more formal Standup Bot tool, like Geekbot. - Source: / over 1 year ago
