Morning Standup at Hashrocket
One of our best practices at Hashrocket is our daily "standup" meeting, which many Agile teams would refer to as a "scrum". We follow a format that we learned from Pivotal, in which each participant either passes or answers one of the following two questions:
- What is something cool, interesting or useful that I learned yesterday?
- What do I need help with to succeed today?
It's a great way for everyone to synch up in the morning and get off to a positive start for the day. The meeting is scheduled for a strict start at 9am and attendance is mandatory. Duration is 3 to 5 minutes at most, unless there's some extraordinary circumstance which needs discussion.
