Stand-up meeting : (Not?) to do lists

Context :
Project, small team, diverse, not dispersed, highly demanding customer, high quality software

Problem :
No visibility, last minute problems, low commitment (not necessarily real but perceived as such), no tools, low budgets, high maintenance charge

Solution :
Among other techniques, stand-up meeting is being seen as an effective way to increase commitment and supporting among teams. Jason Yip (ThoughtWorks, Inc) points out some situations that could prevent this meeting be highly efficient (more details in Martin Fowler’s web site).
It is said that team members should not :

  • Let the problems hidden;
  • Invite people not directly involved in;
  • Drag the meeting out;
  • Have short memory.
