This blog post is part of a series of blog posts on Daily Scrum patterns. (More coming in future posts over the next weeks). 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.
- 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.
Most teams hold the Daily Scrum as a <Standup Meeting>, but this is not required in Scrum, and some teams that are distributed feel like it’s ok to hold a <Sit Down Meeting> so long as they are faithfully executing the objectives of the Daily Scrum.
Teams just starting with Scrum might benefit from a <Close Facilitator>, so long as that doesn’t turn into a <Controlling Facilitator>. A bad practice is facilitating a Daily Scrum such that it <Turns into a Waterfall Status Meeting>.
