Your daily scrum meeting is a quick stand up meeting to plan work to be performed in a sprint. This template incorporates the most common daily scrum questions to help everybody understand where the work is at and where it’s blocked.
Now, remember that the scrum meeting is not a problem-solving meeting. So when you surface challenges like being blocked on this task or that task, your natural inclination might be to try to immediately solve those issues. That kind of problem-solving should take place outside of the scrum meeting. The scrum meeting is more for gaining transparency into what’s happening with the backlog so that the right people can team up to figure things out if needed.
Scrum meetings often take place standing up, with a kanban board on a screen for everyone to see. The team will review the backlog as a visual backdrop while giving these updates. As a best practice, it’s better to have your tasks in the correct columns or statuses before the start of the meeting.
In terms of what to say in this kind of stand-up meeting, you should keep your updates brief. One very common update in a scrum meeting, for example, is, “I have no new updates.” If longer discussions are needed, split those out as separate huddles and keep your scrum as a high-level check-in.
