Daily Scrum is not only about that you as a team member presenting your status and possible impediments. When the other guys are talking it is equally important that you practice active listening. You should really listen to what they are saying and also what they not mention. Remember that you are in the same team working together towards the same goal.


Boris Gloger has improved the Daily Scrum with an additional question:

In the last couple of month I developed a 4 questions that every team member shall have in his mind while listening to the other team member:

  • How can I help you doing your job!

This 4th question will help you to run better and more productive Daily Scrums.
