Hi, first time scrum master. How do you guys conduct your stand up? The client has me sharing my screen to show the jira board and give their updates that don't relate to the tickets. Plz help fix

Your jira board can be helpul to keep conversations focused on what is needed to close the tickets; i believe you may have the view by person as opposed to stories. Changing it may be the trick.

It's a bit of a grey area. The daily scrums are not status update sessions. It's meant to facilitate conversation between the members on the Dev team. Does that always happen? No. I know the scrum guide specifies what should be discussed but it isn't always practical. You really just have to find a balance between the "YTB" and what info benefits the team.

A stand up is essentially a planning session for the team doing the work not a status update. As a scrum master you should facilitate the discussion so that the updates are related to what it takes to compete and close the tickets. If the team is not very mature (and it sounds like that may be the case) the SM needs to step in to direct the discussion more frequently. Over 3-4 weeks you should see the team get better and have the discussion be planning oriented without too much of the SM input

Stand-up is 3 questions and optionally a parking lot section after. What did you do yesterday? What are you going to do today? What impediments do you have that I can remove/help with? Why are your team members giving updates about things not on the board? Is the board wrong or are they not sticking to proper format?

The first thing I do with a new client is to assess their exposure to the Scrum methodology. From there, I give them a brief overview of how it works, explain the ceremonies (stand-ups, reviews, retrospectives, etc), share what is and what is not within the scope of each (make sure to emphasize that the stand-up is a time-boxed *quick* meeting for team alignment/transparency/impedement removal), then share a calendar of the cadence of when each of these events will occur. Then, be very diligent about setting boundaries. This will honor everyone's time and make the most of yours. One useful technique I use is "Hey, that's a great question but it's outside of the scope of this meeting. I'd be happy to set some time aside to walk you through XYX." This frees up the developers and anyone else on the call to get back to work. Depending on how your Sprints are set up (2 week, 3 week, 4 week), you can also add that in a week or two, the Scrum team will demonstrate the completed increment during the Sprint Review. I created a basic PPT slide to show the flow and also created a table that broke down the ceremonies, when they occur, *who* attends, etc. Good luck...you'll do great!
