Every day we do a bottom-up daily scrum. Every person in the company participates in one or more daily scrums so that there’s an effortless flow of information. We believe that staying closest to the customer and having the shortest feedback loop to make decisions provides us a competitive advantage. The daily scrum allows us to do just that.
Here’s how the daily startup scrum works:
- 9:30 – 9:40 manager with team members
- 9:40 – 9:50 C-level with managers
- 9:50 – 10 CEO and C-level execs
We answer three simple questions: What did you accomplish yesterday, what are you going to accomplish today, and do you have any roadblocks? This daily scrum makes it so that everyone knows the top three key items for each person in daily chunks allowing up to make decisions quickly and execute fast.
What else? What are your thoughts on doing a daily scrum?
