The daily Stand Up Meeting is a critical practice, which helps teams move towards Agility. The meeting reflects many core principles and Values of Agile, viz. Communication, Collaboration, Transparency, Self-Organization etc.

The innocuous nature of the meeting can be deceptive in terms of masking the intended goals/benefit, viz. reflect on goals for the iteration, identify and mitigate risks etc.

The meeting is to be done in a very short period of time and hence it is even more important that the meeting’s impact not be diluted by anti-patterns.  Since the meeting is done daily, it is very easy for anti-patterns to embed themselves quickly, unless the team remains alert and takes timely corrective action.

The speaker will draw upon his Coaching experience across multiple organizations to make the audience aware of the anti-patterns. These can be categorized as:

·         Symptomatic

·         Deviant Behaviours

·         Incorrect Practices
