As is known to all, in the scrum daily meeting, every team member should answer three questions, they are: What did you do yesterday, What will you do today, and What is blocking progress. But do you know why thoes three questions are so important, followings are the reasons for each question.
What did you do yesterday?
This question tests the focus of the team. Anything done that was not work on the backlog is questioned.
What will you do today?
This question replaces GANTT charts. Dependencies are constantly changing.
What is blocking progress?
One of the biggest impediments to improving productivity in Scrum teams that I see in many companies is failure of the ScrumMaster to track and prioritize impediments. Management cannot help fix them if they are not clearly identified along with a recommended plan of action.
