Stand up meetings are a fundamental part of the agile development process. All team members must be aware of what each team member is working on and the overall status of the sprint. Maintaining this awareness throughout the sprint leads to successful completion of sprints. This presentation will discuss the importance of holding a daily stand-up meeting, who should attend, who can participate, etc. I will introduce a concept called the ABC’s of Scrum Meetings which defines the best practices for holding a stand-up meeting. Following these best practices will help the team improve the effectiveness of their stand up meeting. The goal for this presentation is to help you improve the effectiveness of your daily stand up meeting, and therefore increase your team’s ability to successfully complete sprints.
My name is Lisa J. Allman. I have lived in Raleigh, NC for over 17 years. I have a Bachelor degree in Information Technology from University of Phoenix and an Associate degree in Computer Information Technology from Mott Community college in Flint, MI. I am currently employed with Allscripts as software developer and Scrum Master for my agile team. I have worked in an agile environment for almost 4 years and in software development for over 16 years. I became a Certified Scrum Master almost 2 years ago and began leading my team part time as Scrum Master. I passed the Certified Scrum Professional certification in December, 2012. I enjoy working in an agile environment because as an individual I can work on different tasks, not just development. As a team, we have the ability to change our work process for the better which improves our daily work life. I enjoy hiking, yoga, swimming, camping, arts and crafts, and spending time with my daughter, family and friends. I also love to travel to different places, spending time at the beach and in the mountains.
