Each day of the Sprint, the team holds a daily meeting, called the Daily Scrum. It aims to disseminate knowledge about what was done the previous day, identify impediments and prioritize the work to be done on the day that begins. Daily Scrums are usually performed in the same place, at the same time of day. Ideally, they are performed in the morning, to help create the new workday.
All team members must participate in the Daily Scrum. Other people may also be present, but they can listen. This makes the Daily Scrums an excellent way for a team to disseminate information about the status of the project.
The Daily Scrum should not be used as a problem solving meeting. Questions raised should be taken to a meeting and usually addressed by a smaller group of people who have direct access to the problem or can contribute to solving problems. During the Daily Scrum, each team member provides answers to each of these three questions:
- What did you do yesterday?
- What did you do today?
- Are there any impediments in your path?
By focusing on what each person did yesterday and will not do today, a team gains an excellent insight into the work that has been done and the work that still needs to be done. The Daily Scrum is not a status report meeting where a boss keeps collecting information about who is late. When using this, it is a meeting with the team members who make too many commitments.
The impediments selected in the Daily Scrum must be defined by the Scrum Master or as soon as possible.
