Are scrum meetings a good way to sync the team and fix problems before they appear?
Or are they a waste of time? While we don't necessarily have a definitive answer to that question, this scrum meeting template
for product owners and scrum masters will enable your team to stay on topic during the meeting. And with the suggestions below, your team's scrum meetings might just as well become a pleasant daily ritual:
Keep the meeting short
We recommend your stand-up meeting be no longer than 15 minutes.
Take turns to write the summary
Assign the role of writing down all the information to one of the team members. It's best if team members take turns to write the meeting notes.
Don't let people ramble
Set a time limit for each speaker to avoid turning your daily stand-up into an hour long planning meeting.
No new ideas
No new ideas should be brought forth in this meeting. This is a scrum meeting, not a sprint planning meeting.
No waiting around
Promote punctuality by starting the meeting on time, even if not everyone is there. It will naturally encourage your team members to arrive on time.
Share after the meeting
After the meeting, share the whole scri.by link with each team member. Optimally, make sure there is a calendar invite so that team members can revisit the content of the meeting later if they need to.
