Controversial Pattern: Update Sprint Backlog During Daily Scrum

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:

  • The Scrum team updates the Sprint Backlog and/or Burndown during the Daily Scrum

Possibly Good For:

  • Very advanced/experienced Scrum Teams who will not let the updating get in the way of the purpose of the Daily Scrum.

Possibly Bad For:

  • New Scrum Teams
  • Teams where the “updating” will distract and take time away
  • Teams where the updater is influenced by attendees.
  • Transparency – Sprint Backlog could be 24hrs out of date

Pattern Contributors:
