Pattern: Only Dev Team Attends

Also Known As:
Warning! Patterns are not a concrete methodology, and using only documented patterns is a sure fire way to destroy creativity and innovation. More here.

Pattern Summary:

  • Only the Dev Team attends the Daily Scrum
    • Caveat The Dev Team should make sure that they are still serving/communicating with the Scrum Master, Product Owner, and wider organization well, through any other needed communication mechanisms besides the Daily Scrum(but of course, avoid waterfall status meetings too).

Possibly Good For:

  • Experienced Scrum Teams

Possibly Bad For:

  • New Scrum Teams
  • Need Scrum Master as Shield
  • Teams where a Scrum Master’s extended absence has allowed slow degradation of the quality of the Daily Scrum

Pattern Contributors:
