    Default SCRUM

    I'm not convinced of the value of morning stand ups, but I'm always a lot more agile after my morning sit down.
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    One place used to have one hour daily standups, but you had to book the standup time to a project you were working on rather than admin

    So ship things on time, we started dropping more features, to allow for the standups on the schedule
    Doing the needful since 1827

    Oh dear. The whole point of a stand up is that the meeting doesn't take long because people don't want to stand for very long. Some clientcos really are run by cretins.

    I used to roll along with my chair - I'm a contrary bastard when I want to be.

    The ones I've attended have all been "seated" standups and have ran on for a while.

    I however used to stand near the window and be a brief as possible

    This place has daily stand up, I am the only person who sits down during them
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    Oh well, see my avatar and make sure you follow the hour long 'seated stand up' with a 20 pound dump. Seated.

    I have found at a lot of organisations the morning stand-up is just a box-ticking exercise for the project manager and very little is actually achieved.
