- Hold the Daily Scrum in the same place at the same time every work day. The best time for the meeting is first thing in the day so that Team members think about what they did the day before and what they
plan to do today.
•All Team members are required to attend. If for some reason a Team member can’t attend in person, the absent member must either attend by telephone or by having another Team member report on their status.
•Team members must be prompt. The Scrum Master starts the meeting at the appointed time, regardless of who is present. Any members who are late pay a fine that is donated to a worthy charity!
•The Scrum Master begins the meeting by starting with the person immediately to his/her left and proceeding counter clockwise around the room until everyone has spoken.
- Each Team member should respond to the following questions:
oWhat was completed on previous day?
oWhat is planned for the day?
oWhat are the impediments?
•Team members should not digress beyond answering these three questions into issues, designs, discussions of problems, or gossip.The Scrum Master is responsible for moving the meeting along briskly from person to person.
•Team members should address the Team. This is not a “Reporting to the Scrum Master” meeting.
•During the meeting only one person talks at a time. Everyone else listens without any side conversations.
•When a Team member reports something that is of interest to other Team members or needs assistance from other Team members, any Team member can immediately arrange for all interested parties to get-together after the Daily Scrum Meeting.
•Chickens (non Team members) are welcome to attend the Daily Scrum Meetings but they are not allowed to talk, make observations, make faces or otherwise make their presence in the meeting obtrusive.
•Chickens stand on the periphery of the Team so as not to interfere with the meeting.
- If too many chickens attend the meeting, the Scrum Master can limit attendance so that the meeting can remain orderly and focused.
•Pigs or chickens who cannot or will not conform to the above rules can be excluded from the meeting (chickens) or removed from the Team (pigs).
