The "Three Questions" for Scrum dailies sound to me like a perfect instruction, to waste 15 minutes with useless status reporting:
- What have you completed since the last meeting?
- What do you plan to complete by the next meeting?
It often goes in the way of: "Yesterday I did task X, today I will work on Y", or, more often, "I am still working on task Z", on almost every day of the sprint. Sometimes with more or less technical details.
Some people say it's for Check-In instead of Reporting, but is there a difference? Apart from Reporting possibly leading to immediate rating. And if, what is the difference?
These reports every day make little sense to me, as long as there are no important news, or impediments to be bookmarked for later debate/solving. They have a tendency to become 10 or 15 minutes of boredom. Or is there a different meaning in the first 2 of the 3 questions, that qualifies "check-in" in a different way?
