Thanks to my friend Marco Abis, I remembered a great article by Martin Fowler called: It’s Not Just Standing Up: Patterns of Daily Stand-up Meetings.

This is in some way the ultimate read for standups and I just want to quote ‘Smells are about when things are going wrong‘:

  • Reporting to the Leader
  • People are Late
  • Stand-up Meeting Starts the Day… Late
  • Observers Interrupt
  • Socialising
  • I Can’t Remember
  • Story Telling
  • Problem Solving
  • Low Energy
  • Obstacles are not Raised
  • Obstacles are not Removed
  • Obstacles are Only Raised in the Stand-up

Great reading, thanks again Marco.
