Remember: this is a list of observations that correlate with well performing teams in my personal experience. It doesn’t mean that your team is not awesome even if you don’t do these things. ❤️
It shows respect for fellow team members who would otherwise be waiting, and it sets a purposeful intention for the day. The actual standup often contains inside jokes, laughter, music. But it starts on time.
But somehow there’s still a prevalent view in some orgs that development = typing.
Also, I’m totes ENTJ and capricorn. Hmu.
STOP STARTING, START FINISHING
- can the team approve their own holidays?
- can they decide their own sprint length (or no sprints)?
- can they make decisions about which tools they use?
- can they decide working hours?
