This blog post is part of a series of blog posts on Daily Scrum patterns. For some background, you might find it useful to read my previous article on a simple Scrum Patterns framework. Daily Scrum Patterns fall under the category of “Scrum Technique Patterns”, as introduced in that article.
Today we’ll talk about “Obstacle Resolution Patterns”
- All Scrum Patterns are displayed as such: <Scrum Pattern Name>.
- All patterns currently link to the same Daily Scrum Patterns Summary Chart, where you can find out more info about each pattern.
Many teams <Defer Obstacle Resolution> until after the Daily Scrum, but some teams <Allow Obstacle Resolution> if they can still avoid busting the 15 minute time-box. Having said that, it’s generally considered a bad practice if your team decides to <Save All Obstacles For the Daily Scrum>.
Some teams use <The After Party> to handle obstacle resolution and other conversations inappropriate for the Daily Scrum, and that’s probably fine unless <The After Party Defeats the Purpose of the Daily Scrum>.
Obstacle Resolution Patterns:
- <Defer Obstacle Resolution>
- <Allow Obstacle Resolution>
- Anti-Pattern: <Save All Obstacles For the Daily Scrum>
- <The After Party>
- Anti-Pattern: <The After Party Defeats the Purpose of the Daily Scrum>
- <Create Your Own Pattern>
