Enrich your standup meeting with WIFLE & 02(Occasion Opinion)

Enrich your standup meeting with WIFLE & 02(Occasion Opinion)

I'm sure, many of you have already attended many standups before reading this blog. If you are not familiar with standups, below are some useful links.

In short, a standup helps you to keep track of your team's progress on a daily basis. Stand-up is a 'self reporting' meeting. In Agile, the team members don’t necessarily report to a team lead. Its main objective is to self organize a team. According to me, standup is a great opportunity to meet all your team members at the same time & get an idea about the lists of tasks an individual is doing during today's schedule & whether any assistance is needed to accomplish those tasks! The meeting should not last for more than 15 minutes for 5-6 teammates!

Alright so we're convinced with standup meetings. We conduct standups daily. Everyday we come, we meet, we discuss & we work.(How boring! I felt really boring while even adding this sentence) We need to add some spices & have some TADKA(tempering) in order to make our standup meetings really interesting. Here, I want to help you make your standup meetings really happening using some out of the box ways!

Techjoomla & TWS Team - Monsoon outing at Tamhini

Tamhini is an awesome place to visit...Especially in the monsoons. The road meanders through mountains covered with a lush blanket of green & gushing waterfalls welcome us at every other corner. This was the place that was chosen for our monsoon outing after much deliberations on whether to go for a Trek or a Trip.

A Private bus was hired and attendance for the trip was at an all time high ! Only 3 people couldnt make it.. But still there were about 24 of us as we started out on the Sunday morning. The Sun was out as we embarked on our journey ( not at all promising here in India in the monsoons ! - So there are no really 'Nice Sunny Days' here ;) ) . We were hoping for rains & a nice windy atmosphere.. but at least it didnt look like that in the morning :(
