  • It's a Scrum ceremony whose purpose is to inspect progress toward the Sprint Goal.

  • It's a 15-minute event for the developers of the team. Product Owner and Scrum Master also participate if they're actively working on items in the Sprint Backlog.

  • It gives a macro vision of the project. Everyone on the team will be on the same page.

    • Improves the team's level of knowledge.
    • Optimizes the probability that the team will meet the Sprint Goal.
  • Each member of the team answer these questions:

    • What did I do yesterday?
      • This question helps managers manage and organize the backlog, priorities, and the value that will be delivered to the product.
    • What do I plan to do today?
      • This question helps each member of the team to create focus and improves self-management.
      • It also gives a little slack to each member.
    • Are there any obstacles?
      • Allow members to help each other after meeting.
  • It's not a status meeting. The status meeting goal is to report what was done to the manager, only. Besides this goal, Daily Scrum also provides:

    • Self-organization: each member must plan their next steps and fulfill their accountability.
    • Maximize transparency because it enables frequent inspection and adaptation. This is important to deal with the complexity and unpredictability that exists in software development.
    • Remember the team about the Sprint goals and values to be delivered.
    • Collaboration. Once someone has been blocked, a team member can help to solve the problem.


  • Can Daily Scrum be done asynchronously?

Slack and Efficiency
"Slack is the natural enemy of efficiency and efficiency is the natural enemy of slack."

Accountability Psychological Trigger
You need accountability to build up credibility. So you have to do things under your name as much as possible, with risky.

Mental Models
Mental models are frameworks, worldviews, representations, or explanations of how something works. They're how we understand the world.

Purposeful Stupidity
"Citizen-saboteurs" learned those instructions to sabotage organizations or governments institutions.

Asymmetric Opportunity
An asymmetric opportunity is one in which the upside is much more significant than the downside.

Authority Psychological Trigger
People consider most the opinion of ones they believe to be better at something, whether because of hierarchy or because the person truly knows about the subject, as a doctor.
