Pattern: Allow Obstacle Resolution

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:

  • Allow some or all obstacle resolution in Daily Scrum
  • Can include discussion.
  • Must be able to consistently conform to the 15 minutes time -box.

Possibly Good For:

  • Teams that are smaller, or can quickly discuss their obstacle and impediments within the 15 minute time-box and without breaking any other objective/rule of the Daily Scrum.

Possibly Bad For:

  • Teams that are time - box busters.
  • Teams that want short Daily Scrums.
  • Teams where outsiders are too tempted to get involved with obstacle resolution. See <Non Scrum Team Member Participates>

Pattern Contributors:
