Do you use daily standup meetings?
How standard daily standups are organized Everyone (one-by-one) is asked about: yesterday activities, today activities, blockers.
But this approach has common problem: people are not always listen to others! Because the next person thinks what to say when it’s their turn.
There is a better model - “Walking the Board” Discuss every ticket on the board one-by-one. The person who worked on the ticket says a few words, can raise any problems that are immediately addressed.
Today is International Volunteer Day!

I am volunteering for Project Management Institute and PMI Moscow since 2010. And I am sure that PMI is the best professional non-commercial organization in the world and it provides the best volunteering opportunities!
My main activities with PMI were:
Work at PMI Moscow board - mostly IT-related stuff and helping colleagues Translation and translation validation of PMI standards, books and PMI exam questions PMI exam development (the most mind-blowing tasks) and validation.
Agile Manifesto changed the software development world in 2001.
However it is just a set of principles. This is why it has led to the evolve of many different Agile frameworks that have crystallized and become widespread.
However different frameworks has different focuses:
Lean/Kanban - teaches how to eliminate waste in delivery pipeline Scrum - promotes leadership inside the teams and defines how to deal with constantly appearing changes Extreme Programming (XP) - shows how to build the highest quality software SAFe - enables large organizations to work as many agile teams connected together … They also have different team structures/roles, different prescribed activities, different slang, etc…
Did you know that the Scrum guide was recently updated and translated to many languages?
