• Participants:
    • Scrum master
    • Team members
    • Optional: Product owner, other stakeholders
  • Taskboard is visible for everyone
  • Standup meeting means that everyone stands up!
  • Duration: 15 minutes


  • Starts (as every meeting) right in time
  • 15 Minutes time to clarify:
    • What have I done since the last scrum meeting (yesterday)?
    • What will I do till the next meeting (tomorrow)?
    • Are there any impediments (that prevent the stories getting done today)?
  • Issues are not solved during the daily scrum – those can be discussed after the meeting
  • If someone is missing – another team member substitutes him
  • Add impediments to the impediments backlog
  • Goal: Everyone is aware whats happening, impediments are clear and written down, new backlog items are created

Additional information

  • Focus on the time frame! if there are long discussions – discuss it after the daily scrum or organize a separate meeting
  • The team does not report the scrum master!
    • it’s a discussion, not a reporting
    • members are talking to each others, not to the product owner or scrum master
  • Think about: What to do when a member is too late? (e.g. one coin into the piggy bank which will be donated. remark: going out for some drinks with that money could be  amotivation for the people to come too late)
  • Team members do the work – it’s not the scrum master who is updating tasks, burndown charts or whatever
