The Daily Stand-Up For Product Owners
The daily scrum is an opportunity for developers or anyone committed to working in the sprint to talk to each other to make sure the entire team is driving to the same goal and working together towards the successfully completing the sprint. It is a short meeting, where those involved in the project interact and keep abreast of any changes that might have happened the previous day, and highlight any impediments that may be affecting the progress of the team. The forcing function of everyone having to stand for it also ensures that is it kept short and that people are physically more engaged and present. It’s a time each day for the team to come together and stay agile.
What is a Daily Scrum?
The Daily Scrum is a daily meeting where the team communicates their current work and highlights any impediments. This raises any issues to the Scrum Master who can then look to quickly resolve them to enable the development team to continue progressing with their work. The only people that should be speaking at this meeting are those that are committed to the sprint. The time-boxed 15 min meeting requires that each member communicates to their team members three pieces of information:
● What did I do yesterday?
● What do I plan to do today?
● What, if anything, is blocking or impeding my work?
The daily scrum is attended be the developers, designers, testers, and other active development team members, the Scrum Master and, depending on the situation, the product owner. This is not a report to higher-ups regarding the project status but is a daily commitment to the team of the work that was completed and what you will get done to make sure the team succeeds.
