    • Before Agile - 1995
      Format
      What did you do
      What will you do
      Open space team room / bullpen
    • 7. Before Agile - 1995
      Results
      Not done often
      Not understood as a pillar practice
      Kept other meetings, so loathe to even add short ones
    • 8. XP Standup - 2002
      Learned Agile – introduced to team
      Not comfortable with all practices yet, so we started with the daily meetings“Hey, this is just like our daily war room meetings, we’ll do that!”
    • 9. XP Standup - 2002
      Results
      We crawled through the list of every bug.
      For an hour. Each day.
      Some tried to sand.
      The experts talked.
      The insecure talked more.
      Bad smells
      Needed 3 question format. Timeboxing. No status.
    • 10. Better XP Standup - 2004
      3 Question Format
      Yesterday
      Today
      Blockers
    • 11. XP Standup - 2004
      Results
      Late meetings
      Long meetings
      Few Blockers
      Design on the Fly
      Status Mania
    • 12. Bad Scrum Meeting – 2006
      Approach
      3 Question Format
      Took minutes for those who could not attend
      Tried to force timebox
    • 13. Bad Scrum Meeting – 2006
      Results
      No one read minutes
      People panic when told they have two minutes
      “Take it offline” items were not followed up
      Few blockers arose
    • 14. Good Scrum 2008
      Approach
      Better understanding of Role of Scrum Master
      Rotated into Scrum Master role, so people know what to look for
      Used ‘Power of 2’ – focus talk on the top two things you did
      Talk about stuff from the sprint backlog
      Culture change – blockers are good!
    • 15. Good Scrum 2008
      Results
      On time
      Early problem detection
      Ties into big visible indicators like taskboard and burndown
      Key gear on the Scrum process machine
    • 16. Now teams are global
    • 17. Global Scrum 2010
      Global Teams are the norm
      Sometimes used teleconferences
      Used virtual worlds for sense of proximity and “co-interaction”
    • 18. Teleplace – Data Centric
    • 19.
    • 20.
    • 21.
    • 22. Many timezones, but feel together
    • 23. Agile Hopscotch © 2010 Agile Dimensions LLC
    • 24. Global Scrum 2010
      Results
      Spatial Audio, body language, shared venue, and co interactive objects made us feel together
      Able to quickly teach Scrum concepts to laypersons
    • 25. Discussion Questions
      When do we update our burndown numbers?
      What do we do for timezone spreads?
      What do we do with specialists supporting multiple teams?
    • 26. Recommendations
      Know who speaks next
      Grid, circle, or prompt
      “Take it offline” – and really do
      Power of “2” – for beginners
      Use for Pairing
      Dump the 1 hour status meeting
      Schedule 15 min buffer after Scrum meeting for quick breakouts
