in reply to Nobody Expects the Agile Imposition (Part V): Meetings
Our stand-up meetings really are stand-up meetings, and they're near the scrum wall (currently still holding details from a scrum that started six weeks ago, that's no longer active. Read into that what you will.)
If there's committee business (how are you going to do task X, because I have an idea about that), it gets taken off-line. Apart from that, it's a quick five minute get-together to make sure everyone's aware of what everyone else is working on.
We also have a longer weekly meeting to discuss long-term goals, vacation, future assignments, upcoming projects. The team lead takes notes about all that, and it goes onto the Redmine wiki so that higher-ups don't need to get sent a weekly E-Mail -- they can just check the Intranet whenever they feel like they need to get up to date on the team.
Works for us!
