  1. Hugo,
    A simple and clear article. I like it. I agree with you. The sense of urgency the daily meeting will bring from the start is really valuable.

    I do like to caution though that – if we didn’t bring the other Agile values such as self organizing teams and servant leadership, to the team, this could back fire in the sense that this could become a micro management tool. It might end up as a Project Manager is trying to figure out what the status is every morning – which is not the intend of the daily stand up meetings. Speaking of standing up – if we didn’t have a good facilitator for the meeting, the daily meeting could end up 30+ minutes meetings and that will quickly add up.

    Those are some pitfalls we got to watch out for. Do that make sense?
