Daily Scrum

[dey-lee skruhm]

Definition of Daily Scrum

Scrum’s daily ‘inspect and adapt’ ceremony; its purpose is to collect ‘today’s reality’, compare it to the Sprint’s Backlog, Goal, Objective, and Kaizen, and ‘inspect and adapt’ to determine what to do today.


The Daily Scrum’s primary purpose is to figure out what to do today.

During the Daily Scrum, either the Product Owner or an affected Team Member should bring up the fact that a change in scope is necessary, and the ScrumMaster and the Team should figure out when to have a discussion about this.


The Daily Scrum is a fundamental discussion that discovers the Team’s current realities and takes immediate and appropriate steps to do what needs to be done to move the work in the right direction.
