        • What have you done since yesterday?
        • What are you planning to do by tomorrow?
        • Do you have any problems preventing you from accomplishing your goal?
      • time-boxing is vital for the effective stand-up meeting – each member of the SCRUM team has strictly limited time for answering the three questions
  • Process description (once again!) Used under
  • What was that about the pigs and chicken?!
    • There was the story of a chicken and a pig walking down the street…
    • The Chicken said:
    • - Why don’t we open a restaurant?
    • - Why not? – agreed the Chicken.
    • - But how should we call it?
    • - “Ham and Eggs” sounds nice to me! – answered the Chicken.
    • … SCRUM is that restaurant. Pigs are those, committed to the project, whereas Chicken are only involved. Only Pigs have the right to speak at the Stand-up meeting.
  • Thanks for staying awake!
