Daily Scrums Keep Your Team On Track

Daily Scrums

If I made the fortunes for fortune cookies, my next fortune would read, “You will be more successful when you hold daily scrums”.

Daily scrums are a valuable tool in keeping a team on track to achieve the goals they set out to do. They keep teams organized and “on their objectives and to help them avoid being thrown off track by less important concerns.” EffectiveMeetings.com outlines 9 rules to starting and maintaining productive scrums.

At Serpico DEV, each project’s day starts with a quick team meeting, or “scrum”. A scrum should last about 15 minutes and focus on what everyone’s goals and challenges for the day are. It’s a great way for everyone to get on the same page. Who joins the scrum? Everyone does. Project managers, developers, team leads, testers and designers. We believe that everyone on the team needs to be at the morning scrum. When everyone knows what everyone else is working on, a synergy unlike anything else is created. Projects get done faster and more efficient.

If you are working with a remote team, the morning scrum is not a “nice to have”, it’s a survival tactic. It’s a way to create a sense of accountability in the whole team, while at the same time getting people, who are spread out by thousands of miles, talking and communicating.
