Project Management

I’m all for Agile, but when you have 4 stand ups for one project... there’s a problem. Trying to coach my team that more meetings isn’t the solution, but not getting through to them. Any advice?

What are you doing different in each standup? Why not combine them? That’s 2 hours a day talking about what work you’re going to do...

Consider sending team representatives rather than the entire team.

Instead of daily standup, try switching it to every other day (or if the team would panic, try killing it once a week to start). On the non-standup days, send an email recapping VERY CLEARLY what would’ve been covered in standup. They’re likely using standup as a comfortable crutch so just easing them off that and proving “that meeting could’ve been an email” can help ease the transition off. Good luck!
