What are the 3 Important Questions in Daily Scrum?

This is the opportunity for the entire team to succinctly sync up on everyone’s individual progress (Burn down chart) against the iterated Sprint, feature, or story point estimations. In other words, the stand-up is a status update meeting, time-boxed to fifteen minutes with the three basic questions below with ancillary items taken offline by the interested parties.

  • What did you do yesterday?
  • What will you do today?
  • Are there any blockers or impediments preventing you from doing your work?

Purpose of the 3 Question in Daily Scrum

The Daily Scrum is the key inspect and adapt meeting during a Sprint. It is designed to quickly inform everyone of what’s going on across the team. It’s not a detailed status meeting. Listed below are few benefits of having daily scrum meeting:

  • Synchronize team’s work.
  • Identifies and removes impediments to development
  • Adapt daily plan and Sprint Backlog.
  • Track progress by reviewing and update the burndown chart
  • Improves team participation and collaboration.

What is a Daily Scrum?

Duration: About 15 minutes

Participants: Scrum Master, the Scrum Team and Product Owner

Rule and Guideline:

  • Start of a working day at the same time and place
  • The Scrum Master serves as a facilitator in the meeting
  • The meeting is held with the whole team standing up so as to not prolong the meeting more than 15 minutes
  • Each member of the Scrum Team is expected to answer the three questions mentioned above
  • Each member of the Scrum Team should take no more than 2 to 3 minutes to answer the above questions

This is simplistic and easy to follow but it’s not really the team speaking with one voice. It can also quickly degrade into a status session and doesn’t bring real clarity to the progress of the sprint backlog.
