It’s Not Just Stand-up

Posted by Marcus Wyatt on 19 July 2006

Martin Fowler posted this great article written by Jason Yip on Stand-up meeting patterns. Who would have thought that a soft process like a meeting can be described like a pattern. This is well worth the read. Here is an excerpt from the article:

The daily stand-up meeting is simple to describe: the whole team meets every day for a quick status update. This short definition does not really tell you the subtle details that distinguish a good stand-up from a bad one.

People who have experienced good stand-ups will generally know what can be done when things aren’t working well. This capability is obviously less likely for people with limited experience to reflect on. I’ve written this paper as an attempt to partly compensate for inexperience by describing the benefits and consequences of common practices for daily stand-ups. These patterns of stand-ups are intended to help direct the experimentation and adjustment of new practitioners as well as provide points of reflection to experienced practitioners.

Enjoy!
