Daily Stand-up Dysfunctions

Agile Ottawa this week had a great group come out to talk about the Daily Stand-up. The discussion covered structure/format, purpose, and surprisingly a great deal on the dysfunctions. Or, maybe it is not so surprising! In my time coaching and working with teams, what sounds like the simplest of meetings often has the most problems of any of the Agile meetings.

The picture of the white-board below is the list of problems that the user group came up with. If we had more time and more space to write we could have kept going! What are the dysfunctions your teams have during a stand-up? Add them in the comments on this post.
