Daily Scrum

Postby shilpajagarwal Wed Jul 27, 2016 12:04 pm

Question 5: You are a ScrumMaster of the agile team. Three new team members joined and team size becomes 10. Team is consistently unable to complete the Daily Scrum within 15 minutes because of language barriers. What is the best action you can take to address this impediment?
A) Set a longer than 15 minutes timebox for the Daily Scrum.
B) Stick to 15 minutes, and coach team to finish without timebox.
C) Split the team into two and plan two daily meetings.
D) Cancel daily meeting and ask the team to conduct one to one chat sessions.

Would like to know how A is correct answer ?

In my opinion A cannot be right answer. Reason already the team is 10 members. This has exceeded the higher limit also. The ideal size is 5-9.
Splitting is the best option, this will fix the problem and enhance better communication and understanding.
What will be the criteria for longer daily scrum? We will have to put a random time limit for longer time, don't know how long this will be. Is this 20 min or 30 min.
The entire team can loose the focus and interest in daily scrum.

C is the best answer.

BTW, What is the source of this question?

For a team of size 10, I would go with C. For up to 9 members, B looks better though we need to change it to "within timebox".
