Daily meeting

I had the opportunity to talk to some people about the daily meeting

Some of them considered that this practice creates a lot of pressure

What is your opinion about this practice?

I'd say the decision to have daily meetings depends on the organizational culture, the preference of the team, and the work that is being performed. In my organization we hold daily meetings only when we're working through a serious problem - otherwise, we have weekly meetings. However, team members communicate often throughout the day, so we have little need for formal daily meetings.

Dear Eric
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion.

The practice of daily meeting is proposed in agile approaches to projects.

What is your opinion about this practice?

Depends on the purpose for the meeting and how it is implemented. A daily status meeting with team members wastes their time, but a daily coordination event which helps to align the team towards high priority work for the day, discuss inter-dependencies and surface impediments would be useful.

Performed properly, it is a great way for the team to avoid wasted effort and to succeed as a real team rather than some individuals getting ahead in their activities whilst others lag behind.

The purpose of daily stand-ups is meant to replace status meetings. They also work best when participants are working on the same priority.

Dear Stéphane
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion.

When "they also work better when participants are working at the same priority", what do you mean in scrum it's called a sprint backlog?

How do people who participate in the daily meeting feel?

I've tried daily stand up meetings with "teams" where the members worked on different deliverables. That never worked because few people were interested in anything but what they were working on.

How do people feel? I don't know how other people feel. What they do is work together to a cause they believe in.

Dear Stéphane
Thank you for sharing this opinion.

What could be done to get them to think and work as a whole instead of the sum of the parts?

Luis

Lots of meeting that extend for more than an hour, could become unproductive. So here is what I suggest:

1- Do meetings only when necessary.
2- Invite only the people involved.
3- Prepare an agenda and stick to it.

I always prefer weekly or bi-weekly meetings but if daily meeting is required, limit it to 30 Minutes at most.

Dear Rami
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion.

These meetings I referred to as "daily meetings" have a maximum duration of 15 minutes, are held early in the day, and are intended for people to talk about what they are going to do.

Hello Luis,

I think you are referring to daily stand ups. I found this type of meetings really valuable it gives the team a quick update on what was accomplished, what you will be working on that day and more important if there are any obstacles. The session is for the entire team. I found them valuable and they save time.

Dear Deneb
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion.

Yes, it is these meetings that I refer to

Some people I talked to about the topic (team members) feel that these meetings create a lot of pressure

Is this practice sustainable in the medium and long term?
