Hands-on Agile Meetup #15: Liberating Structures for Scrum: The Daily Scrum
TL;DR: Liberating Structures for Scrum: The Daily Scrum
The 15th Hands-on Agile meetup continues exploring Liberating Structures for Daily Scrum.
Liberating Structures cover a set of easy to learn, yet powerful ways to collaborate as a team—even as a large team—, overcoming traditional communications approaches like presentations, managed discussions, or another disorganized brainstorming at which the loudest participants tend to prevail.
Use Liberating Structures to Improve Your Scrum Events
Throughout the coming months, we will create exciting new ways how to improve classic Scrum events like the Daily Scrum, the Sprint Review or the Sprint Retrospective. Moreover, we will use Liberating Structures for difficult challenges that agile coaches, Scrum Masters, and Product Owners face, for example, reviewing the existing product design process.
Using Liberating Structures will improve not just the typical Scrum team events. They are particularly well-suited to improve the collaboration of larger groups, for example, all of the Scrum teams of a Nexus. They also allow to include stakeholders from all parts of an organization or your customers in meta-level activities such as retrospectives.
This fifth meetup of the “Liberating Structures for Scrum” series will address the Daily Scrum.
According to the Scrum Guide, the Daily Scrum serves the following purposes:
- The Daily Scrum is a 15-minute time-boxed event for the Development Team.
- The Daily Scrum is held every day. At it, the Development Team plans the work for the next 24 hours.
- This optimizes team collaboration and performance by inspecting the work since the last Daily Scrum and forecasting upcoming Sprint work.
- The Daily Scrum is held at the same time and place each day to reduce complexity.
- The Daily Scrum optimizes the probability that the Development Team will meet the Sprint Goal.
- Every day, the Development Team should understand how it intends to work together as a self-organizing team to accomplish the Sprint Goal and create the anticipated Increment at the end of the Sprint.
- The structure of the meeting is set by the Development Team and can be conducted in different ways if it focuses on progress toward the Sprint Goal.
Join us on July 11th, 2019, and participate in the joined effort to identify how Liberating Structures can help you to overcome Daily Scrum anti-patterns and failures.
