A few months ago as I stopped to check in on a team during their daily scrum and I saw something really interesting happen. This team was co-located in a team room and were all sitting around a large conference table working collaboratively. There were two large whiteboards on two walls of the team room and one wall held a large scrum board.
When it was time for the daily scrum one member of the team said, “It’s time for the scrum,” and started making open handed stand up motions to everyone encouraging them to rise from their seats for the “stand up” meeting.
The team all rose from their chairs and stood in position looking at one another and proceeded to answer “the three questions” diligently reporting the status of the work they were responsible for completing.
