Standups get to me. The idea of "let's punish everyone by making them stand so they won't talk too long" sounds like something from elementary school, not how professionals act.

Just tell the professionals to limit their talk time, take longer discussions offline after the meeting, and have the scrummaster ride herd on the little doggies who forget what professional behavior is.

I refuse to stand in our "stand ups", and when asked why, I merely stated that I am an adult and a professional, and standing up like that is for children.

Then the whole idea of carving out daily meeting time whether it is needed or not, just seems so bureaucratic to me. I call this an article with my views on Agile, but some may call it a rant. Smile | :)
