The Daily Scrum is part of the problem solving process, but it’s only the first step (Problem Identification).

Mattias Skarin has identified the following steps in the Problem Solving Algorithm:

  • Surface problem
  • Concretize problem – write it down! (what, when, how, who)
  • Find root cause
  • Surface ideas (start with those that helps improving the existing situation)

via The problem solving algorithm – Mattias Skarin’s blog.

I would like to add the last and most important step. Problems are ment to be solved or mitigated in any way, so:

  • Implement a solution that mitigate the problem.
