Discussion on: Daily Standup Meetings are useless

Sounds like you just have a bad agile practitioner facilitating your standups.

Here's what I do:

  1. Pleasantries as folks trickle in (1-2 mins)
  2. Trivia or Riddle (5-7 minutes)
  3. Anything you need feedback on? Discuss anything impeding progress. (1-5 minutes)

This assumes you trust your teams to progress through their work and have other measures in place (colocation, strong practices in chat apps) to foster collaboration.

You're blaming the wrong thing
