Agile - sharing experience

The idea with the blog is to share experience about Agile in practice, I have been facilitating CoP (Community of Practice) with Scrum Masters, Product Owners, Team members etc. since 2010 with the purpose of sharing learnings from team to team...

“Learn from the mistakes of others-you can never live long enough to make them all yourself.” quote from John Luther

When discussion goes off topic in the stand-up meeting

Standup meetingPosted by Rune Hvalsøe Fri, November 30, 2012 16:56:36

We see it almost every day when people gets enthusiastic about something in the daily stand-up meeting and start to discuss it - this is really a good sign for the team, but it should also be controlled, the stand-up meeting is a short meeting to keep track of the status, you should postpone all other topics you want to discuss to after the meeting.

An effective way to do this is to write a short sentence on the white board and then move on with the stand-up meeting. When you are done with the meeting, those in the team who want to discuss this topic can stay and discuss it - I have seen many meetings where the entire team stay and discuss it, but it still needs to be after the stand-up meeting, or you will see an inflation in the meeting which is not good.
